A Broken Mirror - Poem by Tiger Lily Love

I looked into the mirror one day
And saw what I've never liked to see
I saw all of my flaws that day
And every last one of my insecurities.
Put on display
Brought to the light
Looking into that mirror
My own tears I had to fight.
The longer I looked into the mirror
The deeper inside myself I peered
And when I noticed my reflection
I was startled to see
That MY reflection wasn't there.
It was the person I really am
Looking back at me
Someone who isn't as steadfast
As you make her out to be
But when looking at who I really am
Became to tough
When looking in the mirror
Became to much
I struck the mirror hard as I could
And watched it plummet from the wall
I watched the only thing
That's ever really seen who I am
Hit the ground
With nothing to break its fall.
And it lays on the ground
Broken to this very day
And I don't have the guts to put it back together
So I guess on the ground in pieces
It'll stay.
