objects in mirror may be
closer than they appear
Do not get too close.
If you get too close, it will hurt,
Beware of imagining you are
closer than you are.
Closeness could just be an appearance
perpetrated by the object in the mirror.
Do not look too closely at the
object in the mirror.
You may not like what appears.
Do not objectify what you see in the mirror.
Others – even some who appear close to you –
will gladly do that for you.
Do not mirror others
just to keep up appearances.
Look beyond appearances
and you may find yourself
Reflect less on what’s behind you and
focus more on what’s ahead.
You won’t want to miss out on any
promising new vistas.
