What do you see when you look in the mirror

(poems go here) When you look in the mirror what do you see
Do you see a child blinded in animosity and dislike
For everyone they see or do see the one trying be bring greatness to a
Quickly down-spiraling family tree

Do you see the kid who’s walking around with
The world in his shoulders; the one that
Has learned to suppress his every emotion

When you look in the mirror what do you see
Do you see the child inside covered in years
Of hurt and months of pain or the young adult
Outside hopeless with nothing to gain

Do you see a person who’s had a hard life
And struggling every day or do you see
The work in progress he’s trying to be

When you look in the mirror what do you see
Do you see someone who down-grade others
Abilities and goals or do you see the person
Who focus too much on themselves they miss
What is meant to be

When you look in the mirror what do you see
Do you see a cowardly lion; do you
See the hell-raising kid you pose to be, do you
See the broken person people tried to
Make you be

Do you see a respectful young man or
The foolish person he choose to be, do you
See the two-faced person your friends see
Or do you see the superior kid you were told
You should be

If I looked in the mirror, ask me what
I’ll see I’ll tell you I see my deepest
Fears looking back at me
