The Reflection in the Mirror Now & Then

Looking at my reflection in the mirror was something I didn’t like to do
Because I did not like what was staring back at me.
I saw ugly
I saw a loser
I saw weakness
I saw shame
I saw fear
I saw pain
I saw a fatty
I saw hate
I saw darkness
I saw unworthy
I saw sadness

Something happened
I saw a distant light
It gave me courage to change what I saw in the broken mirror
I no longer saw a broken image
No longer did I see weakness
I saw and felt the strength inside me
There was pain, hurt, & shame in my darkness but as the light shined brighter
I became a fighter
I saw how brave I was and no longer do I fear the darkness
I value myself

Today I saw my reflection in the mirror
Today I saw love, beauty, intelligence, courage, fearless, a winner and someone worthy of all
Today I felt all I saw!
