When I Look Into The Mirror

When I Look Into The Mirror

2 mins
317


I look myself into the mirror

And see a lot of things.

Freckles, spots and cowardice,

Amidst a lot more other things.


I cry at times, and wonder

Why I was made the way I am.

Is it just me, the fault that lay in my destiny?

Or the whole universe to blame for this fallacy.


I look at other girls my age,

Their talents fill my heart with envy

They are beautiful, smart and all in vain,

Whereas I am…nothing much to gain.


I pray; I change myself

Friends, behavior , clothes and all.

I also change my tone in which,

I speak to them all.


I wish to be accepted by them,

Wish to be loved , cared and encouraged.

But when I look myself into the mirror,

All is see is gloom, hatred and fear.


I wait and watch, for the right time to come,

I know some day will approach, when I will prosper.

I do nothing, but sit and sit and sit,

And when nothing happens, I cry out in fear.


I curse my luck and withdraw from everything,

The ill luck which fills my life.

I am in pain, deep burning pain,

That which only I understand, no one else to say.


And then, after a long time , when I look into the mirror again,

A thought comes to my head, so swift I fail to name it.

I wait , hope for it to come again,

And when it doesn’t, I walk towards it with strength.


Now, I see courage, positivity and beauty,

I see myself as a strong, confident pearl.

She has nothing to fear, nothing to cry about,

Nothing to say, ‘ oh you good for nothing girl’.


I learn to laugh more, grin more and smile

Nothing to feel weary about , even the dark blue sky.

I go out and enjoy my worth and beauty,

I see, I have a lot to add to the world’s serenity.


I realised, comparison, is what, we make ourselves,

No one does it but us.

Forever, we see ourselves as dogs of the street,

When in reality, we are horses of the highest breed.


For talent, worth and importance, is something we all possess,

It just takes some time, or maybe forever to confess.

But when we do accept the fact, that strength is on our side,

We can make sure we proceed and win world’s every fight.
