Am I - Poem by Camilla Ghosh

Am I pretty when the sun won’t shine?
Am I gorgeous when the rain will fall?
Am I stunning when the sky clouds over?
Am I beautiful when the cold creeps in?

Am I pretty when I laugh out loud?
Am I gorgeous when tears stain my cheeks?
Am I stunning when anger clouds my judgement?
Am I beautiful when I’m calm in sleep?

Am I all these things and more?
Or am I none and less?
The mirror lies to me and I’m sick of its deceit.
Be honest…

    Maybe the mirror doesn't show the part of you that is the most vital to you and your living experience: your brain and intelligence. Somewhere someone will apppreciate you for whom you are. Throw that mirror away. (Report) Reply
