Girl This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


She peers up at a featureless face
Instead of eyes, she findspersecution
In the place of a mouth, there is hate
Jealousy resides in thespot a nose should be
There is fear, not freckles
Dark secrets, notdimples
She beholds anger instead of eyebrows
Pain screams out from behinda mask
This is what she sees
She knows the world perceives the facedifferently
She is aware they detect nothing of what she does
But when thegirl looks in the mirror,
This is what she sees.
