Live Life And if You'll Die Tomorrow. Dream As if You'll Live Forever.

I look in the mirror,
theres another behind me,
I stare intently at the face looking back at me,
she's beautiful, scared, lost, worried,
she doesn't know which way to turn,
then I leave the room feeling normal,
talk to my friends,
walk around with my normal daily routine,
I walk back in the room,
and again I see that scared, last little girl trapped inside,
does everybody see this everyday?
See how lost, scared, and worried I am?
What worries me the most is if everyone sees this as me?
Do I see them fro who they really are?
Or do I have to look in a mirror with them there to see deeper than the outside?
Do they see past their looks on the outside?
To see what they really and truly are?
I know if I could use a mirror through my entire life
it would be easier,
I could see how nice, caring, and wonderful people really were,
or I would see how dark, cold, and mysterious they are,
learn who to stay with or who I need to leave,
but the beauty in life is the journey
and all of the wonderful things that come along with it,
somedays I would say just give me a mirror,
but other days I would just wanna say
let life take it's course and see where that takes me,
but for now I need to find who to hold and never let go,
who to drop because of who they really are,
so for now give me a mirror.

I just wish I had a mirror that could really do this.
