There’s something about me that tells a lie.
Every day and its done so for years. I could blame my mother. I really could. She has probably blamed hers too.
I hate looking in the mirror every morning and seeing the lie staring back. Round and round it goes getting darker and darker with each new day.
Nothing I can do can get rid of it.
I tell it what a liar I think it is.
Why are you still here? You don’t speak the truth about me? How can I get rid of you for good?
I’ve followed the hype and been fooled by the promises. Still, it continues to linger and lie to the world about me.
“You look tired. Are you not sleeping well?”
Sometimes this is true, but rarely.
“No I have always had dark circles. It’s my mother’s genes.”
My dark circles, or bags, lie constantly about me.
They say I’m tired, old and haggard.
This is untrue.
Once my body is awake it explodes with energy and I attack the day.
My spirit is full of vibrancy, joy and hope so why do these bags continue to tell the world a different story.
It’s the one thing Id’ change about me.
I’ve tried serum, sleep, water, lotions and potions, but they persist in hanging around.
The worst lie I’ve ever met.
Any tips on how to get rid of this dark, circular lie?
