The mirror is not my friend,
by Vi Lanflagle
Telling me lies,
Always wanting me to follow the trend.
I was stupid believing those lies,
But just when I thought they’d stopped
I felt like I should be a smaller size.
I hate feeling like a failure,
Feeling like I’m not good enough,
Always needing to be reassured.
I never realized what the mirror said
Never imagined that it was all in my head.
I never though that it would happen to me,
Next time I should think,
Before I act on what I see.
