MIRROR MIRROR

MIRROR MIRROR

by Marlene J. Waldock

When I look into the mirror

I see a funny face

A crooked nose, and eyes too close,

And lines that I can trace.


A body that goes up and down

The scale and dress size too

It’s not what’s in my mouth so much

My head is like a zoo



Sometimes I feel I’m in a cage

A lion with a roar

And other times I’m oh so free

An eagle, I can soar.


If only I could fix the flaws

And look like all the rest

Then I could hold my head up high



And feel I’m at my best.


But beauty comes from deep within

It’s not a surface thing

And even with my flaws and such

I have a lot to bring


To feel secure within my soul

All I need to do

Is love myself, for then you see

My beauty will shine through
