Most teenage girls
looking at themselves in the mirror,
Can’t help but
tell themselves how lovely they are,
Well I’m not like
“most teenage girls”
When I look at myself in the mirror
All I can see
is everything that went wrong with it
Eyes to big for my face,
Ears that stick out as far as they possibly could,
A nose filled with black heads,
Chapped lips; with one lip being larger than the other.
Those are all the things
just by looking at my face
well all the things I think they see.
The things they don’t see,
The things I am the only one
that will ever be able to see;
those big bags under my eyes
from restless nights of
hating who I am,
every tear that ever
ran down my face
and the reasons why they came,
the secrets hidden deep into my eyes.
These are things people don’t see
And I hope they never will.
You learn to hid the things you hate;
People don’t know
how much make up covers,
such as black eyeliner;
worn to cover up the bloodshot eyes
from crying night after night.
It sucks looking in the mirror
and never being good enough
and always hating the person looking back at you.
Well I want things to change;
When I look in the mirror,
I want to see a strong, independent girl
Who is happy to be the person she is
And loves almost everything about her.
