As it looks you in the mirror
It points out all your flaws

Every time you shed a tear
It strikes you with it's claws

The marks upon your pale skin
The desire to be thin

The cuts upon your wrist
And all the pain you haven't missed

Yet many years from now
You will finally realise
It isn't worth it
It isn't worth it at all

As it looks you in the mirror
And points out all your flaws

Pretend you cannot hear
When perfection calls

This is a piece I wrote, not about me, but about so many girls my age. I don't usually like writing poetry, and I'm not great at it.

I like the imagery and the flow, and i like how what you wrote was pretty much true way to go and you are good at poetry it shows.

I like the flow of the poem. You handled some pretty deep stuff pretty well, and, I'm liking the image that goes with it. :)

Thank you, it means a lot! And yes, many people I know have been through this, and I feel it is a topic that shouldn't be ignored.
