Girl In My Mirror

March 9, 2008
By Nicole Meeks, Opdyke, IL

there is a girl in my mirror
she is staring back at me

her bruises are not there
her scars you cannot see

the pain she holds lies deep within
this battle she's fighting she cannot win

tired of crying, tired of trying
outside she smiles, but inside she's dieing

it's taken her body
it's taken her mind

a reason to live
she cannot find

who is this girl
why does she hurt, why does she cry

if she says she's fine
it would be a lie
