Writing 101,Poetry Day 02:Reflection

In your reflection what do you see as you look at yourself in the water.

An image that shows you how tiny  and bright your brown eyes are and you smile to see how that looks on your sad face.

You see your reflection as something that is showing you how beautiful you are to yourself. For you love the way your eyes are and you grew into you nose and lips so you look so much more normal now.

You didn’t think much about the way you looked until someone else saw the reflection of you in their eyes, and realize you will not be okay with the way you look.

So you begin to hate your reflection and you start to look down when you come to mirrors and you only look to make sure there is nothing on you in the morning and at night.

The reflection of the beautiful girl is still there, waiting for one day for you to realize again that through your eyes you were always beautiful and sometimes the world can try to lock you in their box because you tried to step out.

  1. Pretty dark stuff Deirdre. You should totally read a book called Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon. I think you would perhaps identify and would get a different perspective on life.
