I want to see a better me,
but the mirror never lies.
The only change I ever see,
is what age takes in time.
I want to see the laughter,
I know I’ve seen before.
The only laughter I ever see,
are the memories that show no more.
I want to see the love in me,
that use to chase my fears.
The only love I ever see,
show now in my tears.
I want to see a better me,
but the mirror I think may lie.
The mirror can never see,
what truly lies inside.

  1. So beautiful. We are not this body. We are the mind that controls this body. The mirror cannot reflect our souls. Only we know ourselves.

  2. Love this touching poem!
