The Person in the Mirror

To the person I see in the mirror everyday,

I apologize for all the hardships I put you through,

for being so rude and so cruel to you,

for lying to you again and again,

for telling you that you’re not beautiful, too plain.

I apologize for shutting you out,

for torturing you no doubt,

for lying to you that you aren’t capable,

for telling you that you just aren’t favorable.

We haven’t been the best of friends from the start

but let’s take a chance and now, do our part.

I love you, you beautiful, most amazing person,

and I can’t wait to see you in your absolute best version.

I’m so blessed to have met you,

promise to stick with you through all the blues.

P.S.-

      Mine too. Accepting myself and putting myself first and actually, loving myself was a major turning point for me

  2. Beautiful poem. Loving oneself is not a crime. Often we hurt ourselves to protect others. Loving others doesn’t mean to ignore self as you can see the pain one goes through as expressed in your poem. When you love yourself you tend to love others more.

      Wisely said and I totally agree. Putting someone else above our own well being just because we love them always turns out to be really bad in the long run.

      Oh I’m so sorry… and I too struggle with self love. Some days are good, some days are bad and some days are even worse. But those few days that are good are just so worth it, that it makes me want to work on myself more.

    Most of us ignore our own needs while clinging on to others’ for the sake of happiness, and that’s the worst thing one can do to themselves. I loved every line, every emotion you used to bring this idea to light. I can really relate to this one. Hope you get to your best version soon enough and even then, never stop. More power to you and your mirror self ❤❤

    This is powerful, like I said before…the first person you should always fall in love with first is yourself because you can’t love someone without loving yourself first. This is more than a poem, this is a poetic message and a lesson for others as well lovely.♥️♥️. And yes, to that person in the mirror, she is beautiful, capable, worthy, big hearted and amazing….trust me, I know😉♥️. So enjoy her company, you’d be crazy not to.
