Poem About Two Sides To Everything

The poem is about the idea of looking in a mirror and judging yourself. Comparing what you think is the truth, seeing only the negative, but someone else may see you in a completely different light.

You see a girl
Who is crying for help
She thinks she's alone
She hurts herself

You see someone
Who feels unloved
Thinks all she does
Is never enough

You see a woman
Whose body is scarred
Trying to escape
This life that's hard

Now look again
And see what I do
Look through my eyes
To see what I think's true

I see a girl
Consumed by strife
Who has many friends
To help her through life

I see someone
For her, many yearn
Doing so much
For little return

I see a woman
Who is true beauty
Trying to forget
A past that was ugly

The same mirror
Yet different eyes
Which set is truth
And which is lies
