    Mirror
    reflects yesterday's pain
    and tomorrow's rain.
    I stare at
    the person before me.
    Is this
    the real and complete me?
    I question everything
    about my essence,
    and I’ve realized that
    the man in the mirror is someone
    I don't know!
    Hell! I don't want to know him!
    Yet can I help it?
    Can it be changed?
    I dig deep within myself and ask this over
    and over again.
    The endless pounding as my
    reflection dances to unheard music.
    Leering and mocking me.
    Then I snap out of my dark reverie,
    complete with the knowledge that
    the man in the mirror is either,
    Who I am, or what I could be.

    Awesome flow. Scary to look in the mirror and wonder what you see. This drop shows the separation between true self and image. Are we the masters of what we become or the slaves of bodies we did not choose?

    I can't say that I completely agree with that...maybe the man in the miirror is not who you want to be or ...see, but it's what you must start with to reverse the change...if the wind can change...so can we.
    very nice write...keep grooving.
