A mirror never lies. People like to try and say that it does, in how it tells them whether or not they're wide of waist when they want the answer to be no, even if it is unmistakably Yes. But there is a difference between putting forth one's projections of the self upon the image the mirror shows you.

It is an innocent force, really. It knows no better. In fact, it is all the more innocent because it can only tell the truth.

I look in the mirror for the first time since my youth, not entirely sure as to what I look like anymore. The only thing I am aware of is there's something about my scarring that keeps people away from me. I always told myself it was just the shock from revealing who I was. But I know what it really is.

I look in the mirror. And here is what I see- An eye without a lid, obviously an artificial one; the etchings in my skin, which leaves tags in some places; a hairline receding until the damage has met its boundary; a box replacing an ear.

I'm staring at it for what seems like half an hour and I still don't understand why people think it's horrifying. Personally I never saw what was so wrong with having two faces. It makes your expressions mean more when you compare the two.

I never did see the perks in having a matching face anyway.

Score It:

(1 = lowest, 5= highest)
