Mirror Vs. My Reflection - Poem by April Swan

Too sinister to be loved
Too hated for that kindness
Too ugly to be wanted
Too remorseful to be silenced
I'm a monster in the depths
Because that what is said
I'm all a fool to believe
Because I am not
Like them
But I am,
Like them
Because I do not believe
A very fool indeed
Because I listen to what they say
That I'm a monster for my skin
I'm too silent in the end
I'm as ugly as I want
Yes my hate could undo kindness
But I will never be too sinister to love
And so in the end be loved in return


Poet's Notes about The Poem

People judge and can think of you all they want, but only you define you.

    Wonderfully creative symmetry, very fitting for the overall concept :) I really like the switch in perspective and the deep meaning behind your words. (Report) Reply
