Mirror Image As I gaze at my reflection I’m intoxicated by it’s allure And I stand elevated by it’s apprehension. He is my counterpart An insight To who I really am, And this understanding Can only befall By the enlightenment of myself Through my soul mate, The black man I need you... Like the sun needs the moon And the stars requirethe sky I need you.... Like birds must have wings To soar and to fly It’s like without oxygen We all would die…. I need you like Incense can’t smoke without fire And like a young boy needs his father Or like a crying baby needs comfort And a flower needs water to grow. I need you to nourish my soul. For whatever lessons I’ll count them a blessing And your light Has made your presence known.
