I always wanted to be like those
who were the best at everything.
Every morning I chose
to look for that something
which others had and I didn’t.
With time I found all those,
and had everything but contentment.
For I gained a lot but lost one thing
which had no replacement.
When a stranger reflected in the mirror,
I started to seek what I once had,
but I was far away from that
and realised why I ended up sad,
I lost myself.
