ascent prior to revisions.

It's getting hard to tell the difference

I hate the person staring back at me 

My reflection 

Is not of me 

But of your perception 

This earthly body 

Doesn't do my soul justice 

You can't see the demons 

But they never let me forget 

Look forward to the day 

I can shed this skin 

Transform into light 

And live among the stars

I see the angelic Princess when I look at you;
The well-beloved Daughter, Father does see too!
When in the mirror, you don’t see:
Blessed Princess, truthfully!!!
Just because your eyes don’t notice…
Doesn’t change the flowering lotus~

Father sees what you can’t Princess
I DO see you, I now witness!

Hey, I've been wondering what happened to you!
"This earthly body doesn't do my soul justice" - just wow on that line! Really superb. I also like how you bring out 'reflection' is really the 'perception' of others. We're caught up in society's standards...it's skin thin superficial...
"Transform into light" - the perfect solution. The ultimate goal.

Well conceived poem, girl. I really like it...

Yes, I wrote it for you! And for every other Princess like you who struggles to see herself for who she really is when she looks in the mirror!
