So many voices speak out,
They call out for introspection, self-love and the ever so elusive self-acceptance.
They have their whys and hows on my this and that,
And here we are;
Just me and you.
When it comes to facing you I struggle to see me in you.
You’re just a reflection, probably an imaginary reflection of I,
You mimic my actions but mock me at the same time.,
You point out my flaws and zoom into my scars
You cannot possibly be me!
I would never do that to myself.
My reflection laughed as I confidently detached myself from you.
Then suddenly I realised, this is me.
I ridicule myself and point out my flaws daily.
I find no solace in my reflection while I entertain the external pains of what they say.
I listened to them,
Knowing my greatness,
I walked to the mirror still I listened to them.
And I blamed you.
My reflection, my calm, my jewel,
I see your hurt.
I’m sorry I caused it.
I will learn to forgive myself for blaming you and synchronously move with you as you do with me she said;
With a calming sensation that rushed over me,
I heard her say I’ve got you!
That’s what she said, I think.
Yes that’s what her reflection said she Said.
