Got The T-Shirt: Who Today?

Does vanity help us to see ourselves in a rosy light? Steph Spiers muses upon what kind of people we are.

Merely a residue of experiences?
Is personality shaped by selective memory,
safe behind interior walls built brick by brick?
Silently screaming, are jagged injustices
seeking closure through smoke and mirrors?
Emotionally dead and buried!
Yet seeking redemption in the small places?
An amalgamation of all knowledge
events, relationships and skills acquired.
Always vanity! Always vanity!
Donning ‘rosy spectacles’ for the looking-glass
for behind the union of haunted mindscapes
reflecting confidence wanes and ebbs.
Victim or survivor? Who today?
