My Reflection

February 6, 2008
By Alyssa Smith, Hamilton, TX

There's this girl
Staring back at me.
From what my eyes see,
She is strong.

But in her soul...
Is that despair?
And in her heart...
Is that a tear?

She says she's
Done with wishing on stars,
That they only
Remind her of old scars.

So this girl
Isn't only what eyes see.
Someday you'll agree;
She's not so strong.

What's this girl's name?
Well, mine and hers,
They're the same.
