What if mirrors were never created?
Would we all be differentiated?
Would categorization based on appearance be common,
Or would we be united, all humanity as one?
If everyone around you, you could perceive
But your own face you could not retrieve
Would that make you humble, or full of pride?
Would you let society dictate your every stride?
Or would you embrace your freedom?
We are more than just a sum
Of the parts that make us a whole.
The most fundamental element is our soul.
If mirrors did not exist,
Neither would our fists.
Instead, we would extend our hands
To embrace all of human kind,
Against discrimination we would stand
To our dissimilarities we’d become blind.
The world would know no hate, no destruction
For we would be too occupied in self-reflection.
