Mirror, Mirror,
on the wall,
who's the fairest
of them all?
Not me, I fear
Not I, I say
I'm just a little girl,
who stumbled in your way.
I apologize profusely
for the shame I've given you.
I'm sure that you must hate me,
that's okay, I hate me too...
Mirror, look at me,
all my sin and shame.
Distract them from my horror,
from my putrid and faux fame.
I'm repulsive, I'm a sinner,
I'm a monster, I'm a mess
I asked, "World, do you hate me?"
and the World responded, "yes."

Wow. this really spoke to me. I love it!!!!! Just a question, are you saying the world hates you because of your looks? Or that when you look in the mirror, you see all the bad things/sins you've committed and the world hates you for it???
