I stare at the mirror
  reflecting in my mind
And I swear I’m  perfect
  until I look behind
And see them so wild
   wondering if I’ll ever be
Able to quiet the voices
  screaming inside of me
Creating this evil scar
   so difficult to heal
A mark upon my soul
   my ability to feel
But as I contemplate my fate
  chase those demons down
Forgetting all I have
  the love that’s all around
Suddenly I see it
   as they speak their evil lies
The demons are clearing up
   I see it in my eyes
A secret to be kind
  can i now share with you
So you may one day find
   the mirror was so true
Looking in the eyes
   the one you stare at now
Showing the evil demons
   swirling around somehow
Are just the devils only way
  of cheating out of you
Happiness and love
  what we hold to be so true
Now as you look into your eyes
   and see your inner peace
Your  happiness and love
  the demons will finally cease
A smile upon your face
  this poem now complete
All you see is the good
  in everyone you meet
