by Coach Akanksha

I see my reflection
           In the pond,
And I wonder
            What all I have done wrong;

I see my reflection
            In the mirror
And I think
of my many errors;

I see my reflection
            In their smile,
I must have made
Someone happy for a while;

I see my reflection
            In his eyes
And I wonder
            If it is all worthwhile;

I see my reflection
            In her tears,
What all mistakes
Have I done over the years;

I see my reflection
            In the clouds,
And question myself
            Have I become a part of the crowd?

I see my reflection
            In the flowers,
And wonder
            Where my laugh has disappeared;

I see my reflection
            In the stars,
They have always
            Carried my dreams far;

I see my reflection
            I see me,
Is this really
            What I wanted to be??

I see my reflection
            In my tears,
And wonder
            If I can now set myself free!

I, now, see my reflection
              In my own eyes,
And know that
I deserve to be much more than 'Me'!

Now is the time to start that change that you really want for yourself! Take a tiny step each day and make yourself more like you really wanted to be!
