Reflections of My Heart
Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 The Mirror   ღ KKD ღ
The Mirror

Oh how hard the image
That appears is to accept
How quickly the years did pass
It seems almost while I slept

The heads no longer turn
And what I am is never enough
It makes the vision reflecting
So hurting and so rough

My youth I squandered
On those of no worth
For a woman of my age
Well there is no rebirth

The beauty within
Just does not seem to count
And the pain left behind
I can no longer surmount

I am a woman
And you can call me vain
But the image reflecting
Does cause such pain

You let me know
I was never quite good enough
Damn how I hate you
For the confidence you robbed me of
