Talking to an Image

I showed you my report card, all As,

But that wasn’t good enough for you.

 

What can I do to make you satisfied with me?

 

I went out for basketball, and I made varsity,

But you couldn’t care less.

 

What can I do to make you be happy for me?

 

In P.E. class, I ran the mile in less than seven minutes,

But you weren’t even proud of me.

 

What can I do to make you praise me?

 

I put on make-up just like the beautiful models in magazines,

But you didn’t even give me a glance.

 

What can I do to make you notice me?

 

I went on a diet, and I lost a few pounds,

But still you just looked down on me.

 

What can I do to make you accept me?

 

I treated everyone like my best friend, even you,

But you didn’t even show any friendship in return.

 

What can I do to make you love me?

 

I am talking to an image

In the mirror.
