Daily Prompt: Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall


Today’s Daily Prompt:

Think of your blog as a mirror: what does it reveal? Consider your blog name, theme choice, design, bio, posts… what does every element tell you about yourself?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us REFLECTIONS.

I glance in the mirror,

And you look back at me.

I study the look on your face,

And I can tell you don’t like what you see.

 

A forehead that’s too big…

And lips that are too small…

A far from perfect complexion…

You don’t like what you see at all.

 

You try so hard to be perfect,

But you keep letting yourself down.

You’re not happy with yourself;

You know, you’d be prettier without that frown.

 

Stop judging and comparing yourself;

Stop caring what others think.

Enjoy the blessings you have in front of you;

They’ll be gone before you blink.

 

You’re pretty on the outside

And yes, even more beautiful within;

You try so hard to make people laugh,

But what’s really beneath your grin?

 

You tell your funny kid stories,

And hope everyone will like you.

But you’re missing something so important:

Alicia, you need to love you, too.
