Why do we stare so much at all
at that little piece of glass on the wall
we call it home
but never dare
to speak of the terrors we encounter there.
we look upon ourselves in sin
through shining glass that can’t see within
the person that we are inside
has depth that mirror could never find.
yet we see only what it wants us to see
and we believe it so unconditionally
why i cry, do we continue to stand there
in front of this mirror which does not care.
It tears us down in every way
from looks and body
to skin and brain.
But what this mirror does not know
is how we were made,
and how we learned to grow.
we were made from love
by two imperfectly perfect people
joining together as one.
so mirror while i may not be
the person that you so desperately wish me to be
i must confess
that i am who i am
and i don’t love me any less.
and while that may disappoint you
i am proud to say
that for the first time in a while
i feel perfect all the same.
I was made in this body
and i will never change
so mirror mirror on the wall
don’t you bring me down today.
thank you for reading
girl outspoken 🙂
