My Poem “Self-reflection”

My life has always been one
of constant reinvention...
every day the man in the mirror reminds me
that you cannot move forwards
if you continue to live your life in reflection...
my life has always been one of questions,
answers, and the pursuit of mystery...
every day the voice within me
tells me to never give up, to stay true to myself,
and no matter what I do continue to be a poet
and an author of my own poetry.

We can only live our lives
by embracing what feels right at the time...
we can only see what we capture with our eyes...
we can sometimes only be free
when we are sleeping and dreaming at night...
we can only compare two sides
when we are given a deeper insight.

Some people will never truly know you,
nor ever understand why you do what you do
and sometimes that can be frustrating -
especially when you want someone to "get you",
to like you, and to want to engage with you...
some people can be drawn to people,
some people can be intimidated by people,
some people can be intrigued by people,
some people can know people
as soon as they meet them,
because they see themselves in them
as if they were their own reflection.
