Mirror Mirror
My reflection is not familiar
My eyes never were so sad
Cheeks never so had
The bags under my eyes so full
Lips never had such a sorrowful pull

 

Mirror Mirror
Where did my smile go
My life filled glow
I don’t know the person staring back at me
This downgraded wannabe
I can’t keep painting this smile
Storing my problems in a file
 

Mirror mirror
My reflection is not familiar

Not to long ago I dealt with major mental problems, I still deal with it today, but I vivdly remember standing in front of a mirror one day and wondering "what happened?" thats where I got this poem from.
