Mirror Mirror...

When I look in the mirror

The first thing I see

Is my eyes

The windows to my soul

Hidden behind my glasses

My armor from the world

Then I see hair that seems slightly possessed

And oily skin with pimples that never completely go away

Beyond that is shoulders that are entirely too broad

A fairly unremarkable pair of breasts

And a stomach that I’d really rather not discuss if its all the same to you

Farther down still are my hips

At least I think they’re there somewhere

I’ve been told I’m supposed to be an hourglass

But just now all I can see is a rather lumpy rectangle

Then come my equally fat thighs

Scarred up knees

My calves aren’t too bad I suppose

And my feet…well they’re feet so I can forgive them their imperfections

They do after all have to carry the rest of me around every day

My hands are too big

My fingers though long look a bit stubby

My fingernails look slightly chewed on

And my polish is chipped again

But beyond what I look like

There is another person

She is beautiful not because of her eyes or her skin or her build

She is smart

And strong

Loving

Loyal

Friendly

Honest

Stubborn

Creative

Occasionally more than a little strange

But most of all she is happy

I’m happy because I see myself as I am

I accept my flaws

They are after all what makes me…well…me

Which is not to say that I wouldn’t change some things

I’d like to be thinner

To have better skin

To feel comfortable in a swimsuit

But until I can make those changes I’m ok with what I have

So when I look into the mirror and don't like the image I see

I just take off my glasses

And lean closer so I can see through the blur my vision becomes without them

Because when I’m that close to the mirror all I can see is my eyes

The windows to my soul

And I like what I see there

 
-Me

I wrote this poem for a project when I was in college about 6 years ago. It isn't perfect and I don't know that anyone will even care to read it but its one of my favorites of all the ones I've written and for whatever reason I felt like sharing just now.
