The Girl In Mirror

Poem By Samantha Martin

The Girl in my mirror isn’t someone I want to see
She isn’t beautiful, kind, or caring
No the Girl I see is someone who is scared
Someone who is blind to the people and things around her
Though people say they love her and people say they care
Most of the time when she needs them most they are never there
When she is alone she seems to find the dark a place where she belongs
And everyday just gets darker
Instead of being afraid
Instead of wondering everyday
She wants to know why she is even alive
Why do I want to live she says
Why is it when she looks back all she sees is pain
And it is always dark and cold
When I look in the mirror I see that girl
That girl is me
Fearing for the world she sees

Comments about The Girl In Mirror

I see rather a lot of these poems, and thought here we go again; the helpless girl who has lost everything but you have really done something different with this. The realisation of self at the end is stunning. Well done for defying my prejudice about 'mirror' poems. Regards Daniel

Days always seem brighter with your friends by your side
You don’t have to worry and you don’t have to hide
Though sometimes there are hard days and bad days too
You can count on your friends when you seem blue

I Hate Today

I hate the world today and hate myself in everyway
I hate the person that I have become
I hate the dreams and the nightmares I have
And hate the days when I can’t


I’m taking all the pain I see
And forcing the knife in farther deep
The blood I shed as I’m lying in bed
Loosing all the thoughts inside my head

For Her

For her we must keep a lie
For her we must die inside
For her what we want can never be
For her you can’t love me

My Life So Far

My life so far isn’t something I like
I fight with anger and hate my life
The person who I use to be
Is no longer there for me
