Reflecting Glass

written by: Tessa Weitemeier



You’re a broken piece of glass
Reflecting mistakes from the past
Carrying on like you do
But are you really you?

Are you yourself or are you just a version of you that’s yours?

With pieces glued together in a way
Because you couldn’t take the fray
For you backed down
From being your own

Did you give up or did someone give you up?

Shattering into a thousand splinters
Each and every winter
Every time the past becomes present
Your memories become unpleasant

Are the mistakes yours or did someone do you wrong?

You believed what they said
All these things that misled
The words that hurt
For so long until you burst

Is this a new chance to rearrange your glass?

Your pieces of glass are reflecting
And they are truly affecting
Little do they know
You are
