Mirror, Mirror


What do you see when you look in the mirror?


You need to be

Flawless, everyone knows it.

You can be beautiful,

Glitter with excellence.

You can shine,

But only if you want to.

Put on a designer dress,

And let your splendor show.

You could wear a band shirt and sweat pants,

But they don’t make you beautiful.

Pretty and bright,

Jewels and gold are

The most attractive accessory.

You could wear a smile,

But you don’t need it.

Powder will hide your flaws,

And clean up your face.

Put your makeup away,

It’s time for you to

Look in the mirror,

See how beautiful you are?

You are perfect.
