That Girl In The Mirror - Poem by Ayla Melville

Does She see what I see?
Does she feel what I feel?
Does she know like I know?
Does she Grow Like I grow?
Or just change as I change
Like a copy, just flipped

Can I learn from her?
Can I look into her eyes?
Can I detect her feelings from within?
Joy, Sorrow, anger, fear?

Does she feel my desperation?
As I search her face for one thing I like?
Does she know I am not looking at her appearance but at her insides?
Not the body, but the mind, the spirit, the feelings

I see compassion, Love, friendship, freedom, sympathy.
But I also see selfishness, jealousy, frustration and laziness.

And I envy that girl in the mirror for she only changes these things once I have changed them.
She does not have to work to change these habits.
But I do.
I try so hard, but always letting others and myself down
But she never does,
That girl in the mirror

    The visible changes may be seen on her, but the other changes must be seen in you and me. Interesting.. (Report) Reply
