Mirror Mirror

Mirror Mirror on the wall

Shows naught but masks until they fall

For hidden underneath the lies

Truth withers and slowly dies

------

Mirror Mirror show what's real

Hidden under heartless steal

Far from people's damning gaze

Waiting deep within the maze

------

Mirror Mirror hide my face

Lest I forget to play my place

Parents, teachers, family too

No one knows the real you

-------

Mirror Mirror now I see

Lest I unleash the real me

I will never truly live

Because of standards others give

-------

Mirror Mirror shatter now

These masks no longer will I allow

Forget the people's judgment call

I am standing proud and tall

------

Mirror Mirror on the wall

You saw me clearer than all

For I am you and you are me

Reflecting each other for eternity


This is a poem of what Harry might have thought if he had to hid his true self because of the Boy-Who-Lived legend. I thought it would have been unbearable to look into a mirror because it would remind him that everything he did was an act.
