Hidden Self

July 11, 2008
By Courtney Handford, Red Deer, AB, ZZ

She looks in the mirror
An ugly face stare back
Dull eyes look at her
Petty Feelings
Anger
Jealousy
Resentment
Smothering her light
She shouldn't be feeling this way

Cruel thoughts invade her mind
Chasing across her features
Transforming her face
Self-destruction
Inferior
Insufficient
Unworthy
Hated dissapointment shines through
She shouldn't be thinking this way

Her soul plummets
Not good enough for her
Broken hopes personified
Secret reality
Depressing
Demeaning
Deception
Fake for all it's worth
She shouldn't be this way

But she is.
