I'll look past the mirror,
Because my reflection
Isn't my definition.
Inside of me
Is something real
Something more important than weight
Or a pretty face.
Beauty is only skin deep-
A mirror is only two-dimensional.

The author's comments:
One of the things I've always struggled with is how I look. I know this is true, but some days it's hard to believe it. A few lines from a favorite poem:

Charm is deceitful,
And beauty is vain,
But a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

Proverbs 31:30
