National Poetry Day

This is a poem that I wrote many years ago when I was just 16… although I looked very different back then in comparison to how I look today, I am still very unhappy with what I see when I look in the mirror. I wish my body was in between how it was then and what it is now! That would be ideal for me… but it is going to take a lot of time and effort to make that happen, it also takes a lot of motivation which I often lack as a result of my mental health… 

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this poem, I would not usually share my own poems publically… 


Is my vision distorted?
Is what I see real?
That heartbreaking reflection,
the one in the mirror.

They think it is for attention,
that it is just a cry for help.
But they couldn’t be more wrong,
I genuinely hate myself.

I hate what I see,
It kills me inside,
Looking at my body,
The one I wish I could hide.

How do they not see the same?
They treat me like I’m crazy.
I can’t do this anymore,
I need them to believe me.

My vision is not distorted,
I know just what I see.
That horrible reflection in the mirror,
the one I see, is me.
