Seven Years

The image in the mirror

Does not reflect

All that I am

 

The image in the mirror

Only tells you

Half the story

 

The image in the mirror

Is someone

Lost and alone

 

The image in the mirror

Shows me

Life is fading

 

Turning to black

An ugly existence

Stares menacingly back at me

 

I make a fist

And smash the glass

To end this dreadful life
