Looking in the mirror

Hating what I see

I don’t recognize my own face

Surely that’s not me


So I paint my face with lies

Covering up what’s inside

Hiding my face from the world

Pushing my feelings aside


Trying to make it one more day

Trying to escape my past

I try to hide it away

But it keeps coming back


Getting caught up in old ways

I’m stuck in my own sin

How can I escape it

When my sin comes from within?


I’m fighting every day

Deciding who I want to be

Struggling to find who I am

Should I let my past define me?


It really isn’t fair

This isn’t how I should be

I’m looking in the mirror

But not recognizing what I see

  1. I’ve been here before, too. Speaking from experience, though, the best thing that you can do is let others in. Make sure that your parents and a close friend or two know about your struggles. They love you and can help you. (And if you ever need someone to talk to, you know where to find me. 🙂 )
