Mirrors don't lie

I stood in front of the mirror

And when I saw my reflection in it everything looked just fine and picture perfect.

I admired myself for looking as charming and beautiful as ever.

It is always a pleasure to meet the person reflecting on the mirror.

Out of sudden, something struck me and I could not hold my eagerness

And asked the mirror ,

Do you see what I hide… beyond my looks, what's buried deep inside?

The mirror smiled, for it never lies.

It whispered.. No, I don't.

But why do you ask me; for I don't judge and you know the truth.

I just reflect back what you show.

I felt relaxed ; and thought for a moment;

What a big fool am I to ask the mirror,

It does not see the pain and sorrows I hide behind the smile.

For if it could see it, then it would have surely revealed.

The real me is only for me to see.

Yes, mirrors don't lie.

My flaws, my pain and tears, I concealed them with much due care.

Shocking but the truth... The darker side ..

My fears, my struggles, my worries are all mine.

And I dare not grant access to the world I live in.

The mirror is no exception.

I always took care that they don't show up and put on a brave face though at times I broke down and cried but stood up again with resilience and much strength.

The poor mirror fails to notice the mask I wear on my face.

Though it does not lie but is not so sharp to reveal the truth either.

I shine and dazzle in front of the mirror,

And it just reflects my brighter side.

I love my mirror for it's been kind

and has no mind to define the real me.

I give my mirror ten on ten

It just shows what I had liked to see .

But yes.. Mirrors don't lie..

Beautifully Explained by you the term”Darpan Jhut na bole” but this is also true that the mirror can’t read the pain hidden on our inner side but the duty of mirro is to show the beauty in us so let it do it’s duty and let’s not allow the pains in side us to overcome this beautiful part of us.Pains are also part of our life so let it pass peacefully and let it go.Try to remain positive

यदि दर्पण मन को भी पढ़ लेता

तो फिर कौन दर्पण को निहारता

यदि दर्पण तन के अंदर झांक सकता

तो कोई कैसे अपने सारे दर्द छिपाता

दर्पण तो तन की सुंदरता है दिखाता

कोई समझ जाए तो ये है समझाता

अगर मैं तन को सुंदर हूं दिखा सकता

तो तू मन को भी सुंदर है बना सकता

दर्द को तो सिर्फ़ महसूस किया है जाता

बिना महसूस करे कोई नहीं बता सकता

जिस दिन मैंने किसी का का मन दिखाया

तो आधे से ज्यादा दर्पण टूट जायेंगे

तन के अंदर का दर्द भी गर दिखा दिया

लोग डर से मेरे सामने भी नही आयेंगे

इस लिए मुझे सुंदरता देखने के लिए रहने दो

अपने अन्दर के तन मन को…
