I Looked in the Mirror

Today I looked in the mirror.  I didn’t like what I saw.

My face is getting rounder. Um, where is my jaw?

I put up my arms to flex, but instead my biceps fall.

What happened to me? I don’t like it at all.

The face in the mirror, stares back at me.

I struggle with my thoughts, when will I be free?

The hate, sadness, the sorrow.

I want to see change when I wake up tomorrow.

I want a new me, a skinny me, a clear skin me.

I want to look and like what I see.


Today I looked in the mirror, I looked and I saw a change.

Not in my appearance, but a change in my day.

Yes, my face is a little round, my jaw not so defined.

But on second thought, I really don’t mind.

I kind of like my smile, my eyebrows look great.

I may not be super skinny, but I have a great shape.

My skin could use some love, but I love it anyway.

I’m not perfect, I’m not even close.

Sometimes I have bad days, I feel gross.

Okay. I’m done rhyming. Here’s the point. I struggle with the way I look. I struggle with the way I feel. Looking in the mirror is occasionally hard. My body has changed so much in just two years. Can I improve? Can I make some changes? Hell yeah I can! But it starts with my mind. I’m working on a better me but I’m also working on loving myself the way I am.

This is short, I know. But this is where my thoughts took me tonight.

I haven’t written anything in awhile. But that’s because I’m working on new things. I’m finally figuring out a direction I want life to take me. I can’t wait to share with you guys. Also, thank you for supporting me and loving me for who I am. I really appreciate all of you. Love you all.
