The Girl In The Mirror


Fighting beneath crashing waves
Hoping to breathe yet cave
Their shining star; her egos slave
The girl in the mirror

Laughing over broken glass
Condemning wrongs of the past
The victim of this sinful craft
The girl in the mirror

Vulnerable under judging eyes
Feeding off these web of lies
A fallen petal of the rose she cries
The girl in the mirror
