The Girl Trapped In the Mirror

The girl that’s trapped inside the mirror
Screams for my attention
Anywhere I look, everywhere I look
I only see the imperfection

She’s fat and she’s ugly
She’s self-conscious and unsure
Whenever people look at me
I feel as if they just see her

She’ll never be good enough
For any boy I know
I’d try and run away from her
But there’s nowhere I can go

Every once in a while I’ll feel pretty
And the girl smiles from her mirror
But as soon as it came, the smile is gone
And the screams of imperfection are all I can hear

Still, I’ll put my best foot forward
Ignore the girl that I see
I’ll try to overlook the girl in the mirror

And try to focus on me
