Staring at the mirror
Not liking what I see
I wish to be someone else
I don’t want to be me
My relection then speaks
“Who the heck do you want to be?
There is no one better than you and me.
So start smiling and be proud
No negativity is allowed.
You are amazing and you are great.
So stop it with all the self-hate.”
Have a great day.
Let out all your words of disdain!
Punch me with all your might!
Do you think if you break me I will cease to exist?
You are so wrong!
For in every shattered piece you will still see yourself.
Look at me! I’ll show you who you truly are. I’m sorry if at times you don’t like who is staring back at you.
I can’t hide you from you. You are beautiful to me despite your imperfections. So please don’t use me to hurt yourself. Love yourself as I love you.
I’m just the regular kind
Not the fun house find
No distortion here
Just you and me
So go ahead and smile
Just like that
I decided to post two today since I did not post on Tuesday. I said everyday so here it is. I hope you enjoy.
