"Your Mirror" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 20/9/2013

So ... Who Do You See … ?
When You Look In … " Your Mirror " … ???

Someone COMPLETE Or Someone Whose Glimmer …
Isn't Quite As Bright As You Might Like … ?!?

Now M.J. Has Passed ... His Song Still HARKS … !!!
Like White Does SHARKS With Racist Hearts ... !!!!!

Ms. America Now Has Caused Some FROWNS … !!!
Because Her Figure And Colour Has Triggered …

IGNORANT Fingers To Suggest Their Mirrors …
Would Rather NOT SEE … " Asian Beauty " … !!!!

REPRESENT …. " THEM " …. !!!!!

... "She's not American !" ...

Were Messages Sent To The Internet ...

Some Seemed SURPRISED … ?
So I'm Asking …… " WHY " …… ?!?!?

Their Mirror … " REFLECTS " …
As It's … ALWAYS DONE … !!!

A LACK of RESPECT … !!!
For Anything BEYOND Their Own Kingdom …

A Kingdom Built On IGNORANCE GUILT And Dollar Bills … !!!

While Reflections SHOW ...
That All That's American … Is NOT GOLD ... !!!!!

In Fact TRUTH Be Told They're Kind of BOLD ...
To Be Leaving Their Home To Impose Controls On Foreign Zones ...

When It's CLEAR They Adhere To Racist Jeers …
Because of FEARS That Their Nations NEAR …
To People of Colour ... Clapping Like THUNDER … !!!!!
In Support of Each Other Instead of Buying HUMMERS … !!!!!

Does Your Mirror Reflect An Ignorant Head … ?!?
Or One Who Checks ... Themselves For DEFECTS … ?

The Type That FLY In Blinkered Minds ...
Who REFUSE To See Who They TRULY BE …. !!?!!

A Vulnerable Soul Who Lacks CONTROL … !!!
When It Comes To Facing Up To … IGNORANT Stunts … !!!
They Pull For FUN That Just ARENT'T FUNNY … !!!!!
The Type That DUMMYS Wrap Up Like MUMMYS … !!!

Because They're Glimmer's For … DIM and DIMMER … !!!!!

I'm NO Dave Schwimmer Or Olympic Swimmer ... !!!

But I Reflect Like Mirrors …
Because I'm A THINKER Who DOESN'T Wear BLINKERS … !!!!!

Because Those Who DO Have TAINTED Views of How They Move …
Because of ISSUES They Refuse To Remove From Their Bathrooms … !?!

When They Look At THEMSELVES In The … " Light of Day " ...
Instead They PRETEND That They're …. " OKAY " …. !!!

Girls Get Made Up … Fellas Run A Muck … !!!
And DON'T Give A THOUGHT To What They IGNORE … !!!!!

Internal WARS ...
That Seep From Their Pores …
Kind of Like …. " SAW " … !!!

Which Is ... NOT GOOD … !!!!!

Broken Mirrors In View …
Locked In … "DARK Rooms" ... !!!
Cos' You … LIED To YOU … !!!!!

See Some Mirrors Consume An Abundance of GUILT … !!!!!
In Souls Who Wilt ... In The Presence of TRUTH …

Unable To Shift What Lies Within …
The GUILT FILLED Things That TOLL BELLS RING … !!!!!

Because of SINS With Which They LIVE … !!!

Their Mirrors Are CRACKED And That's A FACT … !!!!!

What They See Is CLEAR If Somewhat … " SMEARED " ... !!!

Because They DENY What Lies Inside …
Their Body And Soul And INNER Mind ….

How They Roll Is A Story UNTOLD … ?!?
Because They Choose To Hide ... From REALITY'S Bite … !!!!!

Looking In Their Mirrors SOMEHOW With BLIND EYES ... !!!?!!!
BELIEVING They Are Winners Which Is Just ANOTHER LIE … !!!!!!!!

They HAPPILY Deny …
They'd Rather Not Ask Why …
They Lie To Fuel Their Life …

Maybe Because Their Pride …
Makes Them Feel That They're ALRIGHT ... !!!!!!
My Mirror's FILLED With Lines That Prove To Me … " I'm Fine " …

NO Tainted Views Or Thoughts Confused … ?!?
Cos' I Choose To Refuse Having My Issues Consume My Moods … !!!!!
Because of Moves I Chose To Use That … Were Not Shrewd … !!!

NOPE … That's NOT ME … !!!!
My Mirror's CLEAN And Reflects CLARITY … !!!!!

Some See … UGLY … ?!?
While I See BEAUTY And … " HUMILITY " …

SUPERFICIAL Glows Are Now … ON SHOW …
In TOO MANY Homes And TOO MANY Bones ... !!!!!

The Man in MY Mirror Has Learned To Simmer ...
And OPEN My Eyes To A World of Rhymes … !!!
That REFLECT My Life And Others In Sight …

WITHOUT Letting Pride Become What Defines …
The Way I Write ... About Peoples' Lives … !!!

It Is What It Is NO Tricks or Gimmicks … !!!

Just Lyrical Fitness That Flows With A … " Slickness " … !!!
My Mirror Bears Witness To How I GROW With This ... !!!!!

SKILL That Now Lingers Within My LONG Fingers … !!!!!

Like I Said I'm NO Swimmer or Olympic Winner … !!!!!
But I'm PROUD To Be A THINKER … !!!

Whose Question Is … THIS …
What Is It You See When You Look In …

…. " Your Mirror " …. ?
