Mirror Image

I look in the mirror,

Hoping to see who I really am,

Yet all I see is this shell

Looking back at me.

 

I am not this shell and does

Not reflect who I really am,

For the person is seen

Does not reflect my true identity.

 

I look in the reflection

In the mirror, hoping to see change,

For that image is unreal

And does not reflect who I am.

 

I want to be me,

But I must hide behind a shell,

A hollow emptiness that gazes

At the reflection in the mirror.
