A poem for all of the tortured souls.

Do you see what they say?

Get a new mirror

Someone you're not?

Look a little harder

They deny what they see,

so they cover your eyes

Keeping you from what you could be,

by creating a wall of lies

I see a princess,

or a knight in shining armour

So while you're under all this stress,

fight a little longer

For if your last breath,

or your last look at life,

then they will find your unsearched corner,

and up in Heaven you'll see their strife

For missing all your beauty,

or your handsome smile

A fruit ready for harvest,

they wish you would've stayed a while.
