Eyes filled with rage, I shouted
'How can you be so incompetent'
Eyes, equally fiery stared
incompetently, saying nothing !

Eyes flowing with compassion, I asked
'How can you be so indifferent to your loved ones'
Eyes, equally compassionate stared
indifferently, saying nothing !

Eyes full of contempt, I asked
'How can you be so lazy'
Eyes, equally contemptuous stared
lazily, saying nothing !

With commanding eyes , I thundered
'Do something about your flaws'
The mirror, with greater command, said
'You First !!'

I've been reading a few of ur poems and needless to say, this is definitely a hidden talent that has popped its head out. Bring the entire creature out and before you realize, someone could give you a covetous title -Sai 'Milton' Dhananjayan?

Excellent work! Keep the ball rolling.
