In the Mirror

Do you want to know what I see when I look in the mirror?
I see beauty, peace, love and truth.
I see a girl in control of her mind and her body.
I see a girl who doesn’t always know where she’s going
But will never forget where she’s been.
I see a girl who loves who she is even if others don’t quite understand

Yes I see beauty, even though I have acne
And I’m blind as a bat, I see beauty
I see power, unmatched by any one person
I see will and purpose
I see untapped potential waiting to be put to work
I see a girl waiting to shine in the spotlight

I also see a girl who’s used to being alone
Who has a few good friends but enjoys the slience
Of walking by herself down an empty street
I see a girl who’d like to be in love but doesn’t need it
To keep herself happy
I see a girl who loves the colour of her mood changing eyes

I see a girl who’s self assurance often intimidates
Those around her, telling them to back off without a word
I see a girl who defies all those who wish to bring her down
I see a girl who can take a hit and keep on coming
A girl who can handle critism and take it as constructive
No matter the context it’s put in

Can you see her too?

    I can see her very well though your words and your own mood changing eyes. You write very well for someone of your tender years. I really enjoyed this piece

  • Thanks! I’m glad you liked it!
    If only the other people I know could see her too…
