John Carter Brown

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

    John-you got it all said so very well in just four brief lines. Perhaps we all should take a look. Does your mirror need cleaning? This does provoke some room for thought.Worth a higher rating (Report) Reply

    I challenge you to make this into a longer poem without failing to rhyme. That might be the right thing to do with this gem! (Report) Reply
