The Truth about Mirrors

Monalisa - Fernando Botero

Even an iconic beauty
Can view her reflection
Through a prism of uncertainty,
Her image distorted
By self-doubt into
An unrecognizable imitation
Of herself.

I love it. Yes indeed, sometimes when we look in the mirror we don't see who we really are. (This can prove to be either good OR bad.)

This is a beautiful reflection and it recognizes its refracting twin.

You've touched on an almost-universal experience I suspect, Mary. So glad you chose this one.
