mirrors

by rain

i never knew how to define myself.

what's in the mirror isn't what i see.

there's an ugly girl there, there's someone who doesn't know how to be.

but beyond the cracked and shattered glass,

there's something else, something waiting to be said. to be felt.

i've never been able to feel it.

that power.

but now i look in the mirror

i see my reflection in the glass and i begin to see something new.

i am strong.

i am beautiful.

what i see in the mirror doesn't define me.

i define me.

I am thrilled by this poem. I love it because it is a rational look at life. This poem/essay was very well written. The words were chosen to evoke strength and self-satisfaction. Bravo for you. You are now on Granddad's positive thinker list. Great job!!!!!
