Today’s Short #Poem 171

When you spend too long
looking in the mirror
broken mirror
forcing pieces back
into someone else’s pattern
you know
where the next war will begin
you know
nothing will get better.

It’s a package
tangled strings, self-medication,
and blanket hatred.
The vagueness
that gave strength
will vanish.
