To My Mirror. {Poem}


To My Mirror:

You have a bust,

And a waist,

You have hips,

And a nice face,

You have good hygiene,

And you exercise,

And still enjoy ice cream,

Hamburgers and fries,

You’ve got a sense of humor,

And a contagious smile,

But you think you need to change,

And I have to ask you, why?

With all these virtues,

I’ve just listed,

To think something’s wrong with you,

Is simply twisted,

You don’t need to alter a thing,

Except perhaps your attitude,

Just try to see the good inside,

And show yourself some gratitude.
