Grey skies, it might just rain.
Almost as though it feels my pain.
Waves crashing against the rocks.
Feeling numb on life’s hard knocks.
Walking towards the open sea.
In the water I see a reflection of me.
Teary red eyes, a girl so down.
What happened to the girl who was once so strong?
Slowly falling to my knees.
Useless n weak is what I feel.
I looked to find a happy face.
The one I portray in a daily race.
But what I found and what seemed to be.
Was only a true reflection of me.
One that people never see
and one that I hide entirely.
Is this who I always want to be?
My reflection is slowly killing me.
It’s not the life I want to lead.
But it’s up to me to change the reflection I see.
