As I gaze into the mirror

I do not recognize what I see

Except when I stare deep into the eyes

I see the girl I use to be

The girl who use to laugh, run, and play

Sadly that girl is no longer here today

As I continue to stare at the glass wall

I silently wish that I could be that girl again

With no worries and without fears

Oblivious to the troubles around her

I wish to have no fears

I wish I could simply go and play

But I can't do that anymore

I have grown up
