Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery

Sip…

 

A pause to enjoy,
The sustaining crystal flow.
Grasping a clear glimpse,
Of figures unknown.
Oblivious to stature,
In a world of such heights.
Created perfection,
With an instinct to survive.

In The Reflection…

image

Am I like you or are you like me?
Whose reflection do we see?
Lost in wavering introspection,
Striving for identity.

Merged with passive consent,
Which of us is the thief.
Stealing from the real, to feed the false
Monopolizing the mirror’s company.

It’s hard work just to see,
Self scattered in the intangible.
I seek fluidity in self-unification.
A connectivity that’s palpable…

Merge…

image

I am half of you,
Or are you half of me?
Which one of us wins,
In this yearning for superiority?

Images the same,
Together in separateness.
Yet unwilling to merge as one,
Hiding identical faces from acceptance.

A war we cannot win.
A battle we shouldn’t fight.
Futile efforts to remain apart.
With closed eyes, we’re both in sight.

I stare at you closely,
Uncertain if you are real.
We are two halves of a whole,
It’s time we unite and heal.

Blurred Lines…

image

Up is down
And down is up
Reflections surreal
Reality’s cusp

Ripples disturb the placid
The only evidence
Of elemental change
Earth and water’s relevance

A clear sky blurred
Barely recognizable land
Beauty perfected by genius
Illusions’ grandness stands

Reflective Uncertainty…

image

Staring into a cloudy mirror,
The steam of life’s warm tears in her eyes.
Unable to see herself anymore,
And she can’t remember why…

Me Within…

Image

Paused for reflection,
Amidst a revolving world.
I saw me within…

Mirror Mirror…

Mirror mirror

On the wall

Thanks for taking time

To reflect me at all

I once looked inside you

Only to find

That the me I needed to see

Was past the glass, just behind

The superficial reflection

I saw once before

Has life and depth now

And leaves much to explore

I can look at the things

I wish weren’t there to see

And think to myself

“Everyday, God’s working on me”

 

Mirror mirror on the wall

Looking glass of truth

I can finally say with confidence

It’s really nice to meet you
