when I look in the mirror 

I see a gentle soul,

one who means well 

but the attempt seems to fail,

 

and more times than not

I get discouraged,

because the sight of my reflection

isn’t what they hoped for,

 

they wanted what I’m not

and I refused to change,

for why pretend to live an unhappy life?

I must stay true to my beliefs,

 

and by doing so

I write down my dreams,

so they can never take away my vision ….
