Is it me?

I look at myself, and who do I see?
I see the me I used to be,
Not the one that other people see;
The question be, which one is me?

    The question is - does the one we see in the mirror reflect our true self, or the self we think we are. Food for thought here John. (Report) Reply

Into the moors.
