This poem is to inspire you to look in the mirror and believe in yourself, like you believe in your reflection.



Look in the mirror and tell me what you see,

Maybe, the next doctor, lawyer or president to be,

Look in the mirror and tell me what you want to achieve,

When you look in the mirror it is important that you always believe,


Look in the mirror and see that you have the ability,

Any other excuse that you have, is just so silly to me,

When you look in the mirror, you see a reflection of yourself,

Depend on what you have and do not depend on anyone else,


There is nothing on this earth that is too good for you,

Whatever you put your mind to, know that you can do,

When you go to bed, add those dreams to your collection,

And when you wake, tell it all to your reflection.

Hi, Dequarius!
I really liked this piece. You really "hit the nail on the head", so to speak.I especially liked the very last I think I will call upon every morning when I get up. It is a great self- encourager.
It is really sad to know that there are many of us with such low self-esteem. We CAN be who we wish to be, if we just believe! And NOT LET GO!! Thanks for your insight into us humans....looking for more of your work.

I loved the end, I think that a memorable ending is the most important part to any piece.

I think the ending is the most important myself, in this piece it brings home the idea to believe in yourself. Thanks

I look in the mirror and all i see is blood shot, hallow eyes and a strangers face glaring back at me. im glad someone sees something of themselves when they look in the mirror

Not a bad poem. I think that it has a decent subject, and your writing style does it justice.

I decided I was going to go on the last page Booksie had to offer on poetry. I clicked on this because the title appealed to me. This poem was stunning. I am suprised I haven't seen it in a book of famous, well-written poems before. This left a mark on me, and I will share it with people, giving you credit of course. You should be so proud of yourself.
