            MIRROR MIRROR                                                                       

Mirror, mirror as i gaze at you on the wall, I am sure.....

 I am Paul not Paula 
I am 6" 2" I am not any shorter 

 I am black  I'm not white
 I ignore the darkness, embrace the light 
 I have dreads with blond bits in my hair 
 I'm a well built grizzly not a cute care bear

But mirror answer me this am I clever or stupid 
Am I  poisoned with the arrow of Cupid

Have i mastered the written language, the spoken word
 or do I just talk shite or is the last statement absurd

I look in the mirror
 i ask am a saint or a sinner

Am i ugly Betty or a beauty pageant winner 

Does the sun shine when I enter or is the room empty when I leave

Mirror on the wall I ask non but truth 
i implore you not to deceive 

Mirror mirror on the wall
 if I am the fairest then answer my call 

Mirror your a reflection back says what you see 
But I wonder how I reflect on others and how they see me
