The Looking Glass

The Looking Glass
By R. A. Slater

I look in the mirror and there she is
My own worst enemy staring back at me
She knows my every weakness, my every flaw 
I am an open book to her, even what I hide 
She leads me astray, exploits her knowledge of me
Intent on getting her own way
But I am all there is
No one else can fight her 
I alone can conquer
To run the race before me
Though my path is not smooth
And the way ridden with obstacles
I need no one to swoop in and save me
For as I am my own villain
I am my own hero
Shouldering the burdens of reality
I press ever onward
Refusing to be defeated
