It's about a person, who looks in the mirror and saw nothing. But the more that person looked in the mirror, that person realizes that being happy is the best way to see him/herselve's personality.

When I look at myself in the mirror
I see me, but in plain view
I was hoping to see something greater
But there was nothing I could do

When I look at myself in the mirror
There are friends that are in my mind
I smile and think of happy moments
It seems that life was going fine

When I look at myself in the mirror
I saw greatness shining through
I felt myself being happy
It was something very new

I always find looking in a mirror to be good therapy! I like the line "There are friends that are in my mind" we all have voices to contend with and I think liking yourself like you would a friend is important!

Good job ~ Nixie

Well written. Terrific use of rhyme and rhythm(pacing). Liked this one. A lot. Most positive and life-affirming theme and message. To boost one's self-esteem.

Looking forward to reading more of yours when posted.
