Just look into the mirror

Just look into the mirror, lad;
There’s nothing there you could be glad.
The mirror’s not broken, don’t be sad –
Everything’s fine, just you’re mad.

Just look into the mirror, chad;
You did nothing wrong just as I said.
You were just born like this, bad –
Wrongening all you ever had.

Just look into the mirror, sad;
There’s nothing there just a broken lad.
I’m disgusting, and it makes me mad –
But decay’s reaching and I’m glad.

  1. Beautiful poem! 🌹

    p-s1: you’re not really more disgusting than anyone else. all of us are kind of ‘half-disgusting’ & ‘half-pure’. remember Melanie Klein lol

    p-s2: ok maybe you are disgusting hahaha, who knows. but i’m sure a lot of people are worse, or FEEL the same way. there is also some beauty in disgust, sometimes, as you might know.
    for me, disgust makes me more sensitive to my bonds with nature. i find it difficult, but sometimes rewarding.
