Have you ever looked in the mirror and didn’t recognize the face that you see?




Looking in the mirror

At times at my face

And from what has occurred

In any case

I don’t see myself at times

Who is this guy?

With the dark brown eyes

And no smile

With a face that seems to be

Stuck in a numb state for a while

Thoughts and memories

That have been complied

Throughout my complex history

That tends to prevent a smile

Straight faced and laced

With embedded stress

And having to do a whole lot with less

So, I digress

Not to be obsessed with the negative

Just looking back

On whether I just exist or live

A question that I need answered

And one that is quite sizeable

As I began to realize

More and more each day

That I have become unrecognizable


Where writing comes alive
