Glass can be dangerous
when broken by a fall
it can have a sharp effect
whether large or small

Glass also can be beautiful
like as a mirror is
showing clearly what we are
nothing will be amiss

We indeed see ourselves
it is indeed as we are
because a mirror shows
everything even what was afar

Why do we look in the mirror
for we show we are vain
as beauty is only skin deep
indeed inside is our real stain
