Every day I gaze at some image kept in online perception, where perfection is sent with a smiles face of being liked. Being liked is everything. and acceptence is all there is. I can't see past the illusion, and judgement arises in a space of sadness.

And I am trapped, understanding that I will not be beautiful until I change exactly who I am. Others will decide what is meant to be, never me.

Tomorrow when I rise from these nightmare dreams, I will stand before my bedrooms mirror, and I will look with clarity upon my spirits body, met there behind my eyes. And reflected before me, as I look deeply, I will find lasting beauty within me.
