POEM: MIRROR, MIRROR, ON THE WALL BY SHOBHANA NAIR

( To write a beautiful Poem is not easy. It has to come from the bottom of one's heart.Only one who has God-given talent can create a piece of literature which will become immortal even when ages roll by. Here is one from our esteemed writer Shobhana Nair...Please enjoy this beautiful Poem) New World

Mirror, mirror, on the wall.
Mirror, mirror, on the wall
What, inside my soul, can u see?
Bright sunshine in a soft white fall
Or many a stress-filled buzzing bee?

An azure sky, clear and blue
White rabbits with soft noses
Birds singing songs so true
Daisies, sunflowers, dahlias, roses!

A paradise He has made
To the fullest for us to enjoy
Only happiness to pervade
Life is, after all, not a toy!

And yet, will someone listen
To my heart's lonely song?
Wipe teardrops that glisten
And show me where I was wrong?

I may be a child in an adult's garb
A dense fog around my maturity;
I wander lonely, fending every barb
When others regard me with incredulity!

I stand before the mirrored glass
And I wish for my soul to bare
The umpteen ways I can pass
Through this pain in someone's care.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall
I know I am just a pawn;
How clearly now I see it all
Life is darkest before the dawn!
