This Dang Mirror - Poem by Makayla Straight

I glance in the mirror
To only see the monster I have become
Tear drops sting my eyes
I try to hide them
But one by on they come down
Rolling down my cheek
Until I cannot take no more
Then they all start pouring down me
Like a rainy day
What is wrong with me?
That is the question that sings in my head
I cannot do anything right
The laceration is hidden inside
Not a soul can take notice
Take notice of this Emotion Pain
Looking in the mirror
Has made me see
I am truly barbarian
More tears struck my eyes
Knowing what I am
And Cannot Change
Tears me apart.
I am me
That is final
The pain is what I have to accept
You get what you deserve
God, I wish I knew
Exactly what I did
I cant sustain all this...
How long until I just give up?
