I stand here every day watching my reflection.
You stand here every day saying how beautiful I am.
I stand here every day looking at the scale.
You stand here every day laughing how my weight doesn’t matter.
I stand here every day insulting myself.
You stand here every day giving me compliments.
I stand here every day telling myself lies.
You stand here every day telling me the truth.

I stand here every day crying that I’m alone.
You stand here every day reassuring me you’ll never leave.
I stand here every day facing the challenges the world throws at me.
You stand here every day facing them with me.
I stand here every day declaring how I hate myself.
You stand here every day pronouncing how you love me.
I stand here every day knowing I can’t live without you.
You stand here every day holding my hand.

THank you so much, they were written around the same time (actually like two days apary XD) which kind of explains the simularity.

I just read your piece "Reflection" and this has a similar theme and mood. I really love this poem; it's really cute and heart-warming. Love it! :D
