Staring at the reflection in the mirror,
what’s looking back is only the ugly shell
of a girl that used to be there.
A girl who never had a chance,
who’s life was over the second she took a breath.
A girl with a heart of ice due to endless heart break.
She has no thoughts but sad thoughts,
because she has been hurt so badly.
She shows no expressions of emotion,
because she cannot afford to express weaknesses.
Only an ugly girl,
haunted by nightmares of her past.
There is no beauty in that reflection,
only an empty shell,
of an ugly girl.
