Like A Mirror



Like A Mirror

Like a mirror that takes in all
And show reflection of them
Will give always ditto reflection
Not considering whose face it is
When the face moves off away
The reflection also just fades away
Like in our lives there are mirrors
Which shows reflections as required
Suiting to the need of the person
The reflections shall be delivered well
But the reflections are of faked faces
And do have a own real hidden face
That is kept away to hide the secret
And to zap the best from their prey
We have in this world much humans
Who gives out a wide smile up front
And stabs from back for own gains
Draining away the effect of their help
Making the prey end up in bitter pains
Reflections of the faked mirror faces
With abnormal smiles if seen in there
Be sure you are looking at a cheater
Waiting to cheat and just to zap you out
