Reflections On The Water - Poem by Glenn McGahan

This man in the water hes looking right at me
This man in the water a reflection of were I used to be
This man in the water no freinds or family
This man in the water all he has is me

This man in the water crys but makes no sound
This man in the water condemed and bound
This man in the water will surley drown

This man in the water hes gasping for air
This man in the water is my dispair

This man in the water takes his final breath
This man in the water floats in his death

    Hello,
    My name is Nicholas J. Rahming. I am currently a senior high school student and writing my first novel entitled, Reflections. I found your poem quite inspiring and I was hoping that you would not mind if I incorporated the first two and last two lines in my epigraph underneath another quote by Michel de Montaigne, The Complete Essays- “If I speak of myself in different ways, that is because I look at myself in different ways.” (Report) Reply
