In the mirrors gaze,

๐‘ฐ ๐’‡๐’Š๐’๐’… ๐‘ด๐’š ๐’“๐’†๐’‡๐’๐’†๐’„๐’•๐’Š๐’๐’,

A canvas for my faults,

๐‘ด๐’š ๐’๐’˜๐’ ๐’Š๐’๐’•๐’“๐’๐’”๐’‘๐’†๐’„๐’•๐’Š๐’๐’.

But blame, oh blame,

๐‘พ๐’‰๐’š ๐’Ž๐’–๐’”๐’• ๐’š๐’๐’– ๐’“๐’†๐’”๐’Š๐’…๐’†,

Within the glass,

๐‘พ๐’‰๐’†๐’“๐’† ๐’•๐’‰๐’† ๐’•๐’“๐’–๐’•๐’‰ ๐’‚๐’๐’… ๐’๐’Š๐’†๐’” ๐’„๐’๐’๐’๐’Š๐’…๐’†.

The face that stares back,

๐‘พ๐’Š๐’•๐’‰ ๐’†๐’š๐’†๐’” ๐’”๐’ ๐’„๐’๐’†๐’‚๐’“,

Holds no faults,

๐’๐’ ๐’‹๐’–๐’…๐’ˆ๐’Ž๐’†๐’๐’•, ๐’๐’ ๐’‡๐’†๐’‚๐’“.

Yet I, in my anguish,

๐‘ท๐’๐’Š๐’๐’• ๐’‡๐’Š๐’๐’ˆ๐’†๐’“๐’” ๐’˜๐’Š๐’•๐’‰ ๐’Š๐’“๐’†,

Unleashing my anger,

๐‘ญ๐’–๐’†๐’๐’Š๐’๐’ˆ ๐’•๐’‰๐’† ๐’‡๐’Š๐’“๐’†.

Let us seek understanding, compassion, and grace,

We find our own truth,
