Fighting for Me
Everyday I am in battle with the mirror. It's so easy for everyone to see beauty in me, but to see in myself,I am blinded.
Living in a world where the artificial is the prototype, and average needs to be doctored and sealed into perfection, it's hard to be me.
I second guess the compliment of "you're beautiful."
I hide through a (sometimes) counterfeit smile, sunkissed Selfies, daily makeup.
I'm fighting to believe it all.
I want to look at my reflection fearlessly.
I want to be victorious over my everyday battle of self love.
I will win.
