What is inanimate, yet can stand up,
Can start out copper and end up as steel,
So fragile, a child could break one,
But many have the strength to lift a man?

All I had was a mirror and a wooden table.
How did I escape? (Hint: The answer only makes sense if you say it aloud.)
What word has kst in the middle, in the beginning, and at the end?
Curtail me thrice, I am a youth;
Behead me once, a snake;
Complete, I'm often used, in truth,
When certain steps you'd take.
What Am I?
Break it and it gets better, Immideatly set and harder to break again.
