In the mirror

Thu, 01/01/2015 - 19:33 -- chaneal

When I looked in the mirror I saw pain and hurt written all over it.

When I looked in the mirror I saw black and blue.

When I looked in the mirror I began to cry because when I looked in the mirror I saw ugliness.

When I looked in the mirror I only saw what was on the outside and never when deep enough to get a glimpse of the sweet innocent happy girl that i once knew. 

When I looked in the mirror I slowly saw myself fading away so I always looked away.

When I looked in the mirror I wanted to see change.

So I became the change I wanted to see.

Now when I look in the mirror i see happiness and goodness.

When I look in the mirror I see confidence.

When I look in the mirror I see a genuine smile inside and out.
