What massage does the poet want to give from mirror

In this poem, the author has personified the mirror as painstakingly veracious. The mirror reflects the trials and tribulations of the woman, her struggles and her quest for identity as it is, without being influenced by love or hatred. The author uses a hyperbole statement decribing the mirror as a four-cornered eye of a little god who perceives everything that is cast on it. A woman searches for her own identity in its depths. The mirror, being faithful the one, accurately reflects the reality; her true self. But the woman fails to accept it and always turns to liars and flatterers who give her a very biased view about herself.
The author is trying to convey that one often fails to identify one's true self. We try to evade the vulnerable reality and always fail to touch the inner beauty one is filled with and only opt for the materialistic beauty. The author is trying to make the reader understand not to shudder at the realities and that all the materialistic beauty will lose its charm and panache with time; what remains are the values embedded in the woman.
