With every morning looking at the mirror and not liking what I see
I decide nothing a touch here and there can’t fix
With few devices, and couple of brushes
Trying to set a before and after image.
Concealer to keep the black spots hidden
And make me look spotless
Foundation to give me a fresh look
And bring the best part out
Powder to hold it together
And keep my face bright forever
Oooh a little bit of blush
To keep my smile brighter.
The eyes I can’t live out
Shadow to make them stand out
Pencil for fuller eyebrows
Totally loving putting more
And aah what do they call this
Mascara to make this complete.
Moving to lips, where the smile originates
Deciding on the colour to crown my day
Balm to soften it and ensure shining till the end
Pencil around them, to make them seem fuller
Then colour comes in,,, ooh finally lipstick is on
Perfect perfect perfect,,, is what I hoped to see.
But came a shock, I still look the same
With all the efforts I did, to change the one I see
Just occurred to me,, all was waste of time
Then I realise,
To change the girl I see in the mirror
I need more than a couple of games.
No concealer can hide my dark parts,
I need to face them and change.
No foundation to make me bright
It has to start within self.
To make my eyes stand out, I gotta see the correct things
Mascara, Shadow doesn’t work out, its the focus I put in.
My lips no doubt, don’t need the lipstick on
For what they give out, is from the heart my own.
So until I decide to really change the girl in the mirror
No amount of makeup can give me a different me.
Sometimes we use other things to cover the real issues we struggle with, hoping that they will magically disappear. No amount of money, attention, power, friends, confidence, alcohol or even makeup will make you better. True change and improvement start with facing the real you, accepting your issues and problems and work towards creating a better you. Start today, to face that person in the mirror and ask if there is anything you are using to cover up the issues you are facing.
PS: I used confidence and being tough to cover up problems I needed to deal with. How about you? and what are you doing to solve that? Please share in the comment section below.
