When the Mirrors Scream Lies

Shine bright
When the mirrors scream lies
Of worthlessness and hate
And the voices of the
Youth of yester replay
Through your head so weary
 
Shine bright
When your lips turn and your
Stomach churns because the
One that your close ones rave
Endlessly about is
A you you have ne’er met
 
Shine bright
Because if someone is
blind to your beauty ‘tis
because you are shining
too brightly in their eyes.
Pity their sightlessness
 
Shine bright
When all hope is lost and
Those around cannot see
Shine bright
Shine bright
For everything good’s sake
 
Shine bright
 

The End
