Be the change that you wish to see in the world.

In the mirror and see a different person every single day

Some days beauty burns within my eyes

Glows on my cheeks

The next, its ripped away from me

A cold stanger glaring back

An image I wouldn’t want to see

Slight imperfections everywhere

Never good enough

Until it is
