unfair self criticism

Any time I look carefully in the mirror, I see the truth

I am what I allowed; The flaws, the good, and how I treat others

When I feel bad, I look in the mirror and know I can feel good about how I try

But I cannot look to the mirror to feel good about how I treat myself

I have allowed my mind to be pulled into a place that consumes my soul

It consumes the good in me it takes me from those who love and care about me.

I neglect to share my love and time.

I’m talking about escaping the mirror.

I do not want to see myself.
