The mirror whispers words of welcome,
today is your day!

But when the bus rolls up,
the morning turns gray.

"You're fat."
You're ugly."

Your day has been ruined,
as you cry on the stairs.

On your way home,
you think of their words.

You wonder why they
hurt the worst.

The mirror comes back to mock you,
the sayings no longer true.

"You're fat."
You're ugly."

Now you believe it too.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

True. Life can be like this. Or your day can be like that too. It's amazing. Thank you for sharing this.
