When You Look In The Mirror

When you look in the mirror, what do you see?
Do you see your flaws, faults and all your mistakes?
Do you stare too hard, wishing to will away your disgust?
Do you look into your eyes, watching as your self-confidence breaks?

As your reflection stares back at you, you think something's wrong
Yet you don't know you're the cause for your insecurity
What you dislike is what makes you real
No one is cut out to look like utter purity

When you look in the mirror, do you see your battle scars?
Every struggling moment and every fight you fought?
Do you see the storms you've braved or the pain you've suffered?
Do you know you're destroying yourself with every second thought?

Did you ever stop to think there's nothing to be ashamed of?
That everyone has their own imperfections?
That everything you dislike are things you should like?
And that you're beautiful in every reflection?

There are many people who feel what you feel
But only you can set your worries and doubts free
It's time to stop living in your own shadow
When you look in the mirror now, what do you see?
