    The "Stranger" In Da Mirror


    I was walking pass the mirror
    when I happen 2 take a glance
    and saw an image
    that I recognized once before
    but haven't seen
    in such a long time
    I stopped & paused
    became puzzled & conflustered
    wondering why
    I haven't seen
    myself
    in this way
    in awhile
    Why I wasn't
    showcasing the real me
    to myself
    As I stared at this man's reflection
    that I used to know
    someone whom I haven't seen
    since I don't know when
    pondering
    Why have I been keeping you
    under the wraps?
    You're the person
    that everybody else's seem to see
    so
    why don't I see him
    I mean
    why don't i see "me"
    anymore
    Am I afraid
    of
    myself?
    Do I even like who I am?
    I do
    Atleast most of the time
    I do (I think)
    But there's something beneath the surface
    that only I feel
    and no one else's see
    MY FEARS
    of rejection from the people
    I care the most about
    &
    my fear of being alone
    Today I found "Me"
    in total confusion & lost
    looking for where I fit in
    & my purpose
    The question & the answer
    displayed
    &
    starts with
    the man in the mirror
    Me

    you know i love the man you are today both caring and compassionate about the ones you call family.. and the rest we rather not deal with right. But no matter what you see.. remember.. i see you for who you are.. and i love every bit of it.

    Our life can seen surreal sometimes, how we see ourselves vs how others see us, confusing. All we can do is try to be true to our own selves, and hopefully others will see our core, if this is in fact what we want them to see. This was thought provoking poet, and I like that. Flow on poet of the week!
