break the mirrors

I look into a mirror
and see myself

a frown spreads across my face
I'm not good enough for the World

The mirror causes my insecurities
The mirror has caused this feeling

So I will go around to every mirror
I will break everyone of them

There is no longer a mirror
No longer a reflection

Now something else comes over me
It is wonder

I now wonder if I'm good enough
Maybe seeing is better than nothing

I bought a new mirror
hung it up on the wall and looked

My reflection was beautiful
No more wonder

I'm no longer insecure
Because I no know I have beauty

This whole time I had beauty
The mirror just tricks you

It makes you insecure
Then it makes you wonder

It forces you
to place it on the wall again

Sorry mirror
you can't trick me again

I am beautiful
And no mirror will change that
