Broken Mirror

Searching, I turn
but I find only
broken mirrors everywhere
My reflection is distorted
I turn again
confusion-no answers
the mirrors shatter
glass falls at my feet
behind the shards
only blackness
endless emptiness
I turn to find one last
cracked mirror
and I smash it with my fists
I cry through clenched teeth
why must every turn
be a dead end
why must frustration
engulf my soul?
