Reflection (another bit of borrowed feminism)

Based upon some interest from yesterday I post something from the same source without further comment (I added the picture because everyone likes a picture).

It is, once again, a clearly feminist perspective (not that there’s anything wrong with that!) but a little less confronting than yesterday’s offering I think.

It came to me with no title but ‘Reflection’ seems suitable ….

Look. Don’t stare

I’m not invisible

But I don’t care

To be an invention

Of desire

Of thoughts that conspire

To recreate

Denigrate 

I am not an image

From a magazine

To be seen

As paper thin

Nothing within

For I am more than skin

Deep. 

So don’t peep

This is not perfection

Nor rejection

So much unknown

Just look

At me

So that you might see

More than your own

Reflection
