Thinking About... Poems!

Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain... To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices - today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it. ~ Kevyn Aucoin:
"Never trust a mirror,
For a mirror always lies,
It makes you think that all you’re worth,
Can be seen from the outside.
Never trust a mirror,
It only shows you what’s skin deep,
You can’t see how your eyelids flutter,
When you’re drifting off to sleep,
It doesn’t show you what the world sees,
Where you’re only being you,
Or how your eyes just light up,
When you’re loving what you do,
It doesn’t capture when you’re smiling,
Where no-one else can see,
And your reflection cannot tell you,
Everything you mean to me,
Never trust a mirror,
For it only shows your skin,
And if you think that it dictates your worth,
It’s time you looked within."
~Erin Hanson
