When one looks into the mirror, they find
Satisfaction, security. I saw
Disappointment, disgust, all of my flaws.
Muddy-colored hair that’s never defined,
Irises lifeless, never do they shine,
Round-shaped face and acne scars. When I draw
Myself, I use plump lips and distinct jaw
Lines with pearly whites evenly aligned.
I rose one day, my happiness profound,
Epiphany! Negativity erodes.
Such a magical moment, clarity.
A spotlight only I can see surrounds.
I looked to the glass, my reflection glowed;
It was then that I found beauty in me.
