    Evolving notions,
    Transforming emotions,
    A mere likeness, image mine,
    The reflection of inner self,
    Me staring into a mirror,
    But not staring back,
    My visage I couldn’t find.
    Glass covered with the dust,
    Of tradition, restricted skill,
    Common styles, and a tiresome will,
    And me still left trying to find something,
    That can wipe it clear,
    So that I can see myself,
    And envision what they say is already there,
    What I know is already there.
