My Mirror Crack’d!

There’s a superstitious belief that when you break a mirror, bad luck is sure to follow, and it’s 7 years at that. And often, a cracked mirror is disposed of quickly.

Now, if indeed I were to wake up one day to find the mirror crack’d, I’d see a much better world. Not perfect, not even close to it.

Yet, around me, beauty would shine more strikingly than ever just like in an eclipse —

the moon’s mystifying form, sans its own light, renders her more beautiful than the blinding light of the sun…

My mirror crack’d, thus I could see myself more clearly, through my neighbors’ eyes and mine;

Perhaps in a world without mirrors, people would be more humble, quiet, content…

We’d become more in touch with ourselves less the self-consciousness that would otherwise distract us from our real purpose in life — and that can allow you and I to journey on with humility, simplicity, sincerity…

Truly, when our mirror of self-vanity cracks open, it reveals the real gem beneath our facade, our mask…

Each of us becomes a beautiful broken piece from that shattered glass of superficiality and pride.
