Overcoming Yourself

Look into the mirror
Repeating the abusive words
Ugly
Fat
Chunky
Hairy
You look like a man
Too short
Or too tall
Silence the voices inside your head
You wish
Everyday they grow louder
But there’ll be a day
When the evils are silenced
The mirror no longer lies
You define who you are
Beauty beneath the mud
