The theme for today’s assignment is ‘Reflection’..!
Eye is indeed the index of the mind
Deep inside them you can find
Reflections of memories past,
Such wonderful shadows they cast
Reflections of deepest fears
In the dripping tears
Mirroring the turmoil inside
In vain they try to hide-
The inner struggle
And the brain’s fumble
Of despair and jeer,
They try to steer clear
But it cannot be concealed,
Until the inner wound is healed..
They reveal the determination,
The burning fire, the constant redemption
The will to win
The strength arising from within..
Yet, they can’t help but reflect the myriad moods,
The feelings so well hidden under the hood
They’re the gateway to the heart
The mirror of the emotional cart..
My mother tried her hand at this and she’s done so well, I almost had half a mind to delete my poem and post just her’s.!
Here’s her version..
Deep in the eye,
It’s all writ
Be it a sigh
Or a breath of grit
Emotions hidden deep,
Seem to all seep
For the eye has mastered the perfection,
To mirror the mind’s reflection..
Hope you liked it..!
