Mirror of the society

Mirror of the society
When he left her, the mirror broke into pieces.

Hundreds of voices.

When she left him, the mirror stood against,

Against the one destroyed.
When he kissed her, the mirror accused,

Accused the guilty?

When she kissed him, the mirror said,” This

Is nothing but love.” Love done forcefully.
When he cried, the mirror laughed,

Blamed his manhood.

When she cried, the mirror cried too,

Reason not understood.
Mirror of the society shadows the television.

Mirror of the society shadows the people.

Mirror of the society shadows truth.

Mirror of the society..?
