Self Reflection


She has a comely form 

and a smile that brightens her dorm . . .

but she’s grossly unthin 

when seen from within; 

soon a grief stricken campus will mourn. 

Yet she’d never once criticize 

a friend for the size of her thighs. 

Do unto others—

sisters and brothers? 

Yes, but also ourselves, likewise.
