Stranger in the Mirror

She looked up at me and smiled

I wondered where she had been all this while

As my thoughts ran askew

I said to myself ‘This isn’t you!’

 

Her eyes lacked the warmth I felt inside

Her defiant face, an epitome of pride.

Long has it been since she’d had to hide

With my more dominant thoughts, she had complied.

 

‘I would never be like her. Of that much I am sure’

I said to myself aloud

As I slowly turned away

From the stranger in the mirror.
