"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?"
- Alice In Wonderland


The mirror hangs from the top of my door

It just watches me as it sits up high

With a long stretch down to the cold hard floor.

And it stares at me from dusk till dawn why?


The light of my eyes showed a reflection

Of a figure of someone who had cried

The mirror showed me my imperfections.

And the stifles of all of the little lies. 


I am preparing for the girl who weeps

To remember and see what’s next for her.

I wish that there is hope for hers to keep

And love for the next girl who is a blur.


The mirror hangs there so revealingly

And it makes me think how new I can be.

I wrote this piece because I had few friends and I was usually in my room. I would wake up every day to see myself in the mirror and every day I would try to change myself using that mirror as a reminder.
