"Reflections of Self"


I thought it was a dream at first.

It was difficult to see the reality.

I was surrounded with fear and denial.

The pain worsened, I struggled, I screamed.

Through the fog I saw a mirror.

In that mirror I saw myself,

for the first time, genuine, shy, innocent.


My curiosity got the best of me.

I continued to stare in fascination.

As I watched, I felt myself change.

I soon mirrored the reflection in the mirror.


When I realized and accepted what had just happened,

I was finally at peace within.

I walked into the mirror and became one

with what I had always been.

One in spirit, mind, and body.
