Reflection

I couldn't see myself staring back at me
It was nothing but a blank stare
When I would see myself standing there
It wasn't until I saw my true reflection
That I saw perfection
Courage and intelligence
Beauty and elegance 
I stare with such reverence 
The reflection staring back at me
Wasn't me, you see
It was you
