How Do We See?

See me through a broken mirror
I am battered
See me through splintered glass
I am shattered
See me through water’s reflection
I am rippled
See me through biased eyes
I am crippled
But see me broken as you
Before you try to fix

Number 2 for dversepoets.com Quadrille Monday. Prompt word fix.

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

  1. I like how you highlight several ways in which people’s views can be inaccurate: broken mirror, shattered glass, water’s reflection, and biased eyes.
