My mirror

A burden in my heart

Reassurance a drug

Ugliness in my heart

Criticizing my everyday

Why can’t I love

Myself eternal

Needless self- hate

Drives my inner monlogue

Forgiveness an over- used word

Accept yourself they say

But I’m the one in the mirror

That dogs my every step

Seeking shallow compliments

From dogs of people

To know my outside is pretty

Whilst my insides rot

Loving others is easy

Just not what reflects me

Don’t ask me not to criticize

It burns me every day

I can come in many labels, many boxes, a divorcee, survivor, traveler, writer, optimist. But these labels only limit me to who I am at this point in time. But as you will read on my blog, I am my journey. I hope you will enjoy walking this path with me.
