Who am I? A look in the mirror| Poem | Bookosmia

Who do you see in the mirror? 15 year old Prathana Vaid from Army Public School, Noida makes us introspect with this beautiful and deep poem.

mirror poem bookosmia
I looked into the mirror
and didn’t see myself.
I saw the person
who has seen a lot more
than I ever did.
I saw the scars;
which others found fake.
I saw all the pain
that others call mistakes.
I traced my fingers over the wounds
that no longer hurt.
The dried up blood
from the deep cuts of bloody words.
I devoured the eyes
which are tired yet beautiful.
I tasted the lips,
which are hiding some unspoken truth.
I love her.
I love the person she has become.
I fell in love
With the flaws that make her.
All her imperfections
That slowly builds her up.
She is everything
I ever hoped to be.
And also someone
I could never ever be.
