mirror

Why do you
question what I do
Why should I
try to impress you
All I wanna do is
find myself
All I wanna do is
be myself
Ive always been afraid
of who I am
It doest matter
you don’t want to understand
Why am I doing these things
why am I acting this way
I don’t understand anymore
what the hell do I have to say
(chorus)
Who is this in the mirror
staring back at me
Who is this in the mirror
why cant he see
the pain he creats inside
why does he have to lie
Who is this in the mirror
Maybe he’s a hero
or just another zero
a bad guy
who stabs backs and lies
another time
another ryme
another place to be
to see
the darkness she
put into me
if white is white
and black is black
why cant we just
take it all back
you know the grey
in what I say
is what scares you away
(chorus)
Who am I to yell at her
when she is the cure
Who am I to yell at her
when she is the cure

I like this poem, it is very powerful, and I love the way that you incorporated rhyming with your strong feelings- they really compliment each other. Great Job- really!
