Mirror

As honest as I am
Don't believe in follies or lies 
Truth is what I have been taught 
Silver is the colour of my soul
A streak of light connects me to this world
I am no judge of beauty
I faithfully reflect what is shown to me
Yet I'm thought to be dishonest
But this criticism doesn't shatter me
I've been resting on this wall for years
Constant with my service 
Neither time could harm
Nor could your sorrowful crying.
