Looking into the mirror I wonder

  That person staring back at me

Do I know them

  I wonder is it me?

Please tell me I’m dreaming

  These thoughts should not be

I know what I really want

  It’s so plain to see

Did I tell you to see

  My soul has been pleading

To not let you in

  For then it would all begin

Do we always see what we think we do?

Nice Poem...easy read. I like the shortness of it. It really gets right to the point. I believe people only see what they want to see in that ol mirror and then....when they do step back and see truth....can that be the rudest of awakenings? Great question in this piece!!! Michelle
