See that girl there in the mirror?
The one starring back at me,
All smiles and confidence, with sass in her eyes?
Who is she? Where’s she from?
She looks so happy and carefree I want her to be me!
I want the love she must have and joy she radiates,
I want to laugh, not cry nor hide my life all day,
I want to be that girl in the mirror looking back…
Wait, that’s me in the mirror, but I don’t feel that way
That’s the image I show the world every day.
So this is the goal? To smile in true form?
It will take much time to make myself glad for me,
The way I wish and encourage others to be.
I must now follow the path of the vain
So that I may maintain, a more healthy view of my self
Then I shall become the girl in the mirror.
