My Reflection

Image

Who is this staring at me?

I don’t recognize the face I see

Time has changed so much

The way I smile, laugh, and touch

 

Deep within, I’m still the same

My faith, my heart, my name

One’s core can remain in tact

So much else changes, that’s a fact

 

My nature has always been to love

That was instilled in my soul from above

The way that I show it now has grown

In ways that are well known

 

When I forget who I am inside

And stress leaves me feeling a little fried

I find my way back by quieting my mind

Slowing my thoughts so that I can unwind

 

I then turn to You

You help me through

Each storm that within me rages

Each hurdle I face, You see me through in stages

 

I must grow, must learn

If the rain didn’t soak me, if the fire didn’t burn

I’d remain a child in an adult’s skin

Trials I had to face so that the growing could begin

 

Mistakes were made and sorrows known

But through them, I have flown

Stronger, kinder, and wiser am I

And this will continue to happen by and by

 

I believe that the day I am done growing

Is the day that I am done living

As my reflection changes from day to day

May I still see the core of who I am, I pray

 

No matter how I change throughout the years

May I never let win my sorrows, doubts, or fears

Instead let hope, faith, joy, and love win out

The way of light and laughter is my route

 

I grab my reflection’s hand

We skip through time across the sand

Making the most of life

Pushing past all hurt and strife

 

Loving those who are here while I have the chance

Taking a chance too on my dreams, desires, and romance

As my reflection learns, she grows

That’s just how the story goes

 

Life comes and eventually it fades away

But that doesn’t mean it can’t somehow stay

So I choose to let my legacy live on

To not be forgotten even well after my time here is gone

 

One day you won’t see my face

I will have gone to a better place

My final reflection, what will she look like to you?

I hope that it will be one that you find to be loving and true.

  3. Lovely concept and imagery in this wholesome introspection on personal advancement and the Freudian questions of id, ego and super-ego. In my humble opinion the one drawback is its length. The poets of old (mostly) wrote to form – there was a fixed outline and schema for a sonnet, a terza rima, a villanelle etc. The reason for this was in reducing words and concepts to fit, one’s best and finest effort had to be whittled down to its essence. Poets were literally forced to give their best. We don’t use these forms very much these days but I believe that writing them for practice improves my poetry in general – and even produces an accidental success occasionally. Try it as an exercise or for fun when you have time. Best wishes – Mike

      I have never liked writing short poems, it’s just not my style. πŸ˜‰ But thank you for the feedback, Mike! I am glad that other than it’s length, you enjoyed it!
