You were born an origanal why die a copy?The secret to success is the consistency to pursue.To the world you may be one person,but to one person you may be the world.To receive the right answer,you must ask the right question.Don't worry be happy! :)

When I look into the mirror,
The reflection I see is you.
I no longer recognize myself,
I wish that wasn't true.
Everyday I'm pretending,
I'm disguised with lies.
You are my new identity,
You're the soul behind my eyes.
The only thing I can hear,
Is your voice inside my head.
Where have I gone,
The real me seems dead.
I don't remember who I was,
You have been me for so long.
You made my like seem right,
When everything appeared wrong.
I am captive in your love,
In your chains I am bound.
I'm searching for myself.
The true me needs to be found.

The author's comments:
I hope people will learn to always be true to themself and not to conform to fit someone else's mold because who they are is perfect and doesn't need to be altered to make someone happy. Remember, you were born an original so why die a copy?

This is so beautiful! It's sad and heartbreaking but so deeo and meaningful. I can so easily relate to it cuz i remember I've been pretending to be someone I'm not just so I can fit in and be appreciated and noticed. But thank god now I realize how wrong I was, that being myself is enough. I learned to say :"Either accept me this way or go look the other way" Great job, keep itup and thanks for sharing this

"Imperfection is beauty. Madness is genius. And its better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. And when it comes down to it, I let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, I'm already better than them."

Amazing.. nothing to say but wow.

This is a very great poem, it is very deep and it really speaks.

Your poem was really deep in thought, and had really good rhyming to it. When I read your poem I found that it was a sonnet poem. I also found some assonance used in some of the ending words of a verse.
