Mirror, Mirror, I don’t like what I see
Who is the girl staring at me?

Mirror dear mirror, why is she so sad?
What has life dealt her that turned out so bad?

Mirror, oh mirror, she looks so weak
I wish I could bring the comfort she seeks

Mirror, Mirror, who do you reflect?
Her face looks familiar, but when I closer inspect

That Mirror, my mirror, that girl is me
I am not what I had thought I would be.

Mirror, my mirror, is this how I am seen?
They see the bones, not the tears in between.

Mirror, Mirror, on the wall
I couldn’t catch me when I started to fall.

Now it’s mirror against mirror, but which one is me?
When one sees my skin, and one sees underneath.

This. Is Amazing. :) I suggested this to a friend of mine who has anorexia... she cried... Thank you so much. Keep writing, really. :) The point is repeated, but each time uniquely and with a very small twist to keep you reading.. I am very impressed. Keep it up. :)
