Looking in the mirror is the hardest sometimes

Having to stare at myself and realise I’m not perfect

I have scars and triggers and things I’d rather keep hidden

I would rather close my eyes and pretend they don’t exist

But looking in the mirror is freedom 

Owning who I am and not pretending

Yes I have been hurt and have hurt others 

Doesn’t mean I’m proud of it 

I’m simply not letting it have power over me anymore.
