When you look in the mirror : A poem July 13, 2009

When you look in the mirror,

do you like what you see?

When someone calls your name,

is that who you want to be?

You may find it a wierd thing

to write or think about

But seriously now, I ask

is it beyond reasonable doubt?

Do you ever catch yourself thinking

This is not who I want to be

Why am I feeling out of place

Do I need some clarity?

When you are angry at the world

Are you angry at yourself?

Or has fate just conspired

to make your life living hell.

Is it fair to blame someone

For your own stupid mistakes

Ask yourself this my friend

Before you step on the brakes

Whatever it is you feel

When you close your eyes to sleep

Is the truth hidden inside you

And it’s hidden pretty deep

So before you blame the world

For bad luck or being unfair

Look inside for answers

You’ll find your answers there
