THE MIRROR LIED

Who am I?
And, why am I here?
The questions in my heart keep 
multiplying from time to time
I thought my parents would 
have an answer
But unfortunately, not even my 
mum or dad have a clue.
I spoke to my grandpa, and he 
asked me to look in the mirror.
So I ran back home to have a 
good look of myself
But the me in the mirror only 
stare in my face and mimic my 
gestures.
Of course, I saw a reflection of 
me in the mirror
But it never said a word of it 
own.
In fact, staring at him for that 
long made me feel dumb and 
dumber.
So I ran back to tell grandpa a 
piece of my mind
And on getting there, they said 
grandpa is gone.
He left without telling me the 
answer that I seek.
Now, I must keep on searching 
until...
Or should I return to that 
mirror and look a bit longer?
