Emulate Through the Looking Glass

Updated on October 27, 2011

Mirror, mirror on the wall look

Into my soul and answer me this question

Who am I?

How many times have I stood before you?

Inquiring of you in desperation

You always reply with the equivalent answer

A woman with a good heart that’s

Been broken but will heal

To one day, walk out of your private

Hell to love again to believe in

Fairy tales

Is my future going to be one of good fortune?

You gaze back at me, into my eyes and utter

Your future is what you make of it

Success or failure is your decision

Ask me another question

Will I find love and a man who will

Treat me like his queen

To this you speak

You have to treat yourself like a queen

Moreover, be the queen of which you speak

Never be a subject walk

With your head held high

Dignity and pride in who you are

Wear as a suit of armor

Will it keep from pain mirror mirror?

On the wall

I have told you and still you ask

A lot you must learn if you

Are to have love

Self-confidence is one

Believe in yourself is two

And three damn the world

Before it damns you

Mirror, mirror don’t go away

I still have questions and

Need answers right away

Look within yourself into your own heart

Search deeply search with truth

All your answers you will find

Looking in the mirror into your

Own eyes
