Self portraits.

Give me one good reason?
Still struggling I bet!
Make it up and go along
Inventing pet hates and
Feeling lost to stale mates
Don't tell me what I want
Go to bed and dream a little dream
Dream that you find yourself
and your self esteem
Because to be bluntly honest
I am big enough to talk the talk
and walk the walk and
you're just plain not.
Talk of hate and try
to paint a hater but
Only a self portrait Appears
in it holding who you really are
And defining all your fears
Painted with an honest brushing
Keep your paintings
They are too pretty a truths
To hang them up here.

Mirror, mirror,

On the wall, why do people think they know at all?

Forgiver, forgiver,
In the door, forgives for they know not what they do it for.


Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS
