Mirror Mirror

Mirror Mirror on the wall,
who's the saddest of them all?
is its the girl who cant stop crying or maybe its the girl who kept on trying.

mirror mirror on the wall,
who's the biggest fool of them all?
maybe its the girl who kept on giving or maybe its the girl who just stopped living.

mirror mirror on the wall,
who's the prettiest of them all?
maybe its the girl who kept on smiling or maybe its the girl who is slowly dying.

mirror mirror on the wall,
who's the smartest of them all?
maybe its the girl who gets straight A's or maybe its the girl who has never had a bad day.

mirror mirror on the wall,

i just want to be beautiful and witty.

mirror mirror on the wall,
i just want to be thin, pretty, and tall.

mirror mirror on the wall,
if i change my hair maybe someone will start to care.

mirror mirror on the wall,
if i starve myself at least ill be beautiful,
forget my health.

mirror mirror on the wall,
if i cut my wrist will i feel like i exist?

mirror mirror don't you see?
what you show,
is ruining me.

for far to long it had watched her cry.
so the mirror decided to reply.

"what you think you see,
it isn't true.
this misery is found inside of you.
don't lock your self in a broken soul,
or ill promise you one day you'll lose control."

mirror mirror on the wall, i cant take this anymore.

I'm throwing you away so i don't have to look at my reflection anymore.

Beautiful, espeically the mirror's reply! I didn't quite expect it to end this way, though, with the mirror being thrown away. Great job!
