The Vanity
I am made entirely of flaws,
stitched together by good intentions.
Not lacking in virtue by all its laws,
who has achieved their personal brand of perfection?

Oh, do point me in their direction…

I will be the mirror,
For those who aren’t yet vain or wise enough
to hold one to themselves.

And once captivated,
Caught in all their illusions of grandeur…
Having become them,
I will reflect them.
Reminding them of the ego they so adore,
And revealing the imperfections they wish to ignore.

For at the very core,
They are made entirely of flaws,
Stitched together by good intentions.
