The poem is below.



Take a look in the mirror an truly 
Oh, I want you analyze what you see 
and you will find it was no dream
I don't know what to do about you 
the life you show me is confusing 
I see through the looking glass 
and what I find is my beaten past
that i'll my eyes and clouds my mind 
I know I am strong 
and my mind is deep as the rushing sea
But if you ever see the way I lived
then just maybe you wold stoup judging me
the way I feel can make one i'll
I have accomplish so many things in my life
but maybe to you 
you may never see a thing 
but only broken dreams 
I hold on to what is right 
But, learning to let go what is painful
But to forget the memories 
that play over and over in my head
I tell myself things are going to be alright
everything will smooth over like the ocean
I sometimes have to apologize 
when I get scared I get mean
Full of conflict that others bring 
they love to see me in pain
But when they see I can get just as mean 
they can see the changes from my eyes
I can light a fire just as fast 
that blaze through that old stain glass 
when my life feels pain 
Oh, it's like a thunder showers
that come my way 
I will forever remember you
I will remember how you kept me abused
I see you in all my dreams 
You sure do know how to scream
memories are very hard to erase
they are like a sharp razor blade
that keeps cutting with time 
where the heart will never truly heal
Just try to visualize my life in your own eyes
look in the mirror and tell me what you see
my pains do cut deep 
just maybe if you could feel my own pains
you would stop judging me for my dreams.
