Look in the mirror.

What do you see?

I see someone who

means nothing to the world.

 

I see a stranger.

Brown hair. Blue eyes. Red lips.

All look like me but yet so different.

this person is unknown

to all mankind.

Ignored. Unloved.

 

Somewhere inside that person i see

I'm there waiting

to come out

and be who i want to be.

Strong. Funny. Visable.

 

I can't break out

of this alien body.

No one knows

that I'm stuck here.

no one cares.

 

Every day i look into the mirror

hoping to see me

but all i see is a stranger

looking back.

Smiling evily.

Waiting to attack

when i least expect it.

Waiting to hurt me.

Waiting to scare me.

 

So now when you look in that mirror

do you see you

or a stranger?

Who's stairing back at you?

an impersonator?

Or just you?
