For so long i struggled with unhappiness.
Looking into the mirror, wishing the pigment of my skin was just a tad bit fairer
That if so life would be a lot easier.
For me, just living wasn't even worth it
There was many times where i have "completely lost it"
Words from the past that continued to cut so deep and penetrate my skin oozing out the pain from within
Everything got out of control, I cant handle myself anymore
The person in the mirror was my biggest enemy
She hated me so much and i couldn't understand it , she looked through me.
I lived like this for years and no one knew.
Till one day i looked into the mirror and she looked different.
She looked me in my eyes and smiled and told me " You are beautiful. You are kind. You are important."
Such simple words she spoke, but somehow became the lighting to my tunnel.
Days went by and i realized i wasn't down and out.
Life was different now.
My vision was a lot clearer.
My body felt a lot healthier
My mind was finally at ease
So now we both walk this world together as one.
