Mirror Say Mirror See Poem by Amber Griggs

Mirror say Mirror see

Tell me what you see in me?

For what I see is a girl

She moves identical to me

But the girl in the mirror is nothing like me

She has no glow,

The glow that every girl needs

I see no beauty,

A plain Jane

Mirror say Mirror See

Tell me what you see in me?

What I See is not me

She has no hope in those little eyes

For she has seen too much

I see a girl who is not me

She does not smile

For her lips has spoken lies

Mirror say Mirror see

Tell me what you see in me?

Who is this girl in front of me?

For what I see is couldn’t be

Her skin is not perfect

For she has to many scars

She has been through too much

The girl in front of me is not the beauty I need

No, she is no Barbie

But a Rag Doll drug through life

Mirror say Mirror see

Is that really me?

I am no beauty

For I was never a gift

But a girl with a dream

Mirror say Mirror see

Will that ever be me?

    Wonderful! Full of real thoughts and feeling. What do I see? . I see a girl who is strong and can see her faults but has yet to realize that those faults are what make her a true beautiful soul.
