A Look in the mirror

It’s scary how my reflection stares me dead in my eyes
Truth takes first place as my face dismisses all lies
No use to lie to the mirror as it has never did that to me
As I move he moves but only my side whispers am I crazy

Every blink reveals flaw once hidden by my ego
Every muscle within my jaw seems to want me to know
That I am what I am nothing more and nothing less
A reflection of my past an attitude of no stress

Screams inside my head collect themselves in my image
Distorting my display I bow my head to my own image 
Perfection is a word placed on a throne of stars 
Again I look into my own eyes … I now see my emotional scars

I ask what is wrong with you and my echo repeats itself 
So the question is asked and asked as I answer it myself
Nothing I just miss what we could have been and what I could look at 
But as that has been said the mirror silently looks back

No we both stand still in a place dipped in silence 
Silently silencing my hearts raging violence 
Cause with all the time I spent looking at you 
It became painfully clear to what I must do 

Accept that it is what it is and it will be what it will be 
Or to put it in my own words I will just be me
So now all the dots connect and seem to be linking 
Will I change myself or is this just wishful thinking
