Treasure Island

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

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.
