An identical figure stands before me as I look into the glass
All I see is everything wrong
Why is her face so spotty?
Why is her skin tone uneven?
Why does she keep on looking at it as if it’s something to be proud of?
Is she vain because of this?
It seems to be that whenever people look in the mirror,
They either say everything that’s right with them
And everything that’s wrong
Appearance is powerful:
It’s the first thing you notice about a person
But it doesn’t mean it’s the most important
Sometimes looking in the mirror
We see the mistakes we’ve made
Wow, that’s the face of the person who did that
Why are we putting ourselves down?
But why are we also overrating ourselves?
It seems like we’re either too much or too little
We’re either more than we think we are or less than we do
Why can’t we just feel happy about ourselves no matter the way we look?
No matter how many mistakes we’ve made,
We’re still wonderful
And that’s what we should say to ourselves every time we look in the mirror
