The Reflected World

What is the world you see in the water or the mirror?

What wonders lie in that backwards place?

What is that reflected world?

Is everything opposite there?

Is up down and down up?

Is right left and left right?

What is that reflected world?

Do pain, sadness and hunger exist there?

Is it a place with no wrongs?

Or is it full of them?

What is that reflected world?

Is it where we go when we die?

Does it reveal the future to us?

I shall never know.

I don't think anyone ever will.

It is a world sealed away from us mortals.

Till the end of time people, including myself, will wonder:

What is that reflected world?
