Inanimate objects hold duality and the viewer’s perspective highlights the prominent side. The mirror could be a relic of self beauty for some. But, for a few, it could merely be a reflection of what they hate the most. I fall in the latter category, but this isn’t a hateful note oozing with resentment. It is a monologue of sorts. The lack of response hinders me from calling it a conversation.
“We understand how dangerous a mask can be. We all become what we pretend to be.” – Patrick Rothfuss
We have all learnt to hide ourselves, behind thick curtains, not allowing our true selves to peek through. We have all become actors, worthy of the greatest awards. But maybe we have dwelled so much on weaving these intricate masks for the world to see, that we lost track of what about us is real and what is not.
