Poisoned Mirror

You may not see it in yourself
But I see it every day

You are the image of beauty
You are the image of strength
You are the image of self confidence

And all I ever want is to be like you
Self aware
They way you manage to succeed at anything
and everything you put your mind to

Everyday I envy you
Everyday I cherish you
Everyday I hurt inside as I watch you in the mirror
Because you don't see any of this
Because you can't see what I see
Because someone's polluted your mind with poison

You don't see the proud eyes of those who stand by you
You don't see the swarms of people who just want to know you
You don't hear the laughs of the people that just want to be you

For once I just want you to look in the mirror and see yourself
Truly see yourself
And if you are able to see even a glimpse of what I see
Well you will just see how special you are to me
