Have you looked in the mirror lately;
Narcissism they call it and self obsession,
But when I look in the mirror I see a warrior.
They don't know that and don't tell them!
My face wrinkles show the laughter that vibrates in me,
The loose skin manifests my eating disorder,
My acne shows the times makeup has blessed me.
My eyes show the sorrow of the loved ones gone-
My skin tone hated from dusk to dawn.
This mirror shows my will to live and battles faught,
So call me narcissistic for all I care because I will turn to the mirror and smile for the new love I found in me!
