How Can This Be?

This Person Isn't Me!

Image result for gif picture of different person's reflection in a mirror

Of what I see I need not be
'cause what I see is not so me.
For if I were this person kind
then this would truly blow my mind.
I located its lonely eyes
which now I have come to despise
and feel as though it can't be me
'cause this is what it cannot be.
This mirror must be incorrect
I wear not tattoos, I inspect.
if I did, I'd not wear them there,
for there is where I'd really care.
And there's a pimple on my cheek
It wasn't there, the other week.
My eyelids droop down to my lip,
that doesn't make me look that hip.
Why is my skin looking so gray?
It looked not that the other day,
and by the way, what's with the hair?
It looks as though I sure don't care.
So mirror, mirror on the wall,
you make my skin begin to crawl.
If that's the way my face does clash
I'll put you. mirror, in the trash.
