They say that practice makes perfect...

and you've always been smart,

but you've got hating yourself,

right down to an art.

 

It's not just a step,

in your morning routine

to glance in the mirror

and not like what you've seen.

 

The voice in your head lies,

but it won't let you know,

you gave up on ignoring it,

along time ago.

Flowers in a vase,

keep guard by your bed,

yet you still see their beauty,

though their petals are dead.

 

If they were a person,

they'd have themselves too,

but they would always be loved

by someone like you.

 

Although your petals are wilted,

and you think no-one knows,

you are only counting your thorns,

while the world sees your rose.
