    There are so many of me

    Looking into this mirror my reflection
    many faces stare deeply dissecting each of us.
    Who are we?
    There are so many of us
    Let us look at her, the Daughter.
    is she who we want to be or who they
    want to see?
    Always the sweet innocent one,
    never wanting to tarish their
    image of us.
    Who is this Sister person?
    Why does she do those things
    despite the pain
    they sometimes brings?
    Thinking she can help them all,
    but they're not always there
    to hear her, if she should call.
    And that Mother, I utter, she's
    the cream and butter of us.
    Gentle, smooth and sweet.
    She's good peeps, but in the
    wee hours of night
    we hear her weeping. she doesn't
    know we peek, she don't want
    us to think she's weak.
    We don't know about this Wife
    character. We don't think
    she's blossoming. Maybe
    this isn't where she should be.
    We heard she planing on
    divorcing us.
    We guess she's doing as she must
    Who's that
    in the back,
    w~~ay in the back?
    Oh! She's the woman in us.
    She doesn't come out much.
    We think you've spent too much time
    with the rest of us.
    You need to invest quality time
    with her
    We sense hunger in her.
    She wants to live alittle,
    have some fun,
    do something
    on a whim, for once.
    and not think of the trouble
    she might get in.
    But! She can't do that.
    She's the one who thinks for us.
    Who would we
    be if she did those things?
    Guess we won't finish
    discovering who we are,
    From constantly changing
    absorbing things in.
    From places we've been and will go.
    Guess we won't know
    til our journey ends,
    Just who it is
    we really are.
    :confused:
