# Alter Ego Poem by Sonya Florentino

# Alter Ego

Rating: 3.6

She’s larger-than-life
She’s bolder
She takes more risks
She’s wilder
She doesn’t disappoint
... my imagination!

She takes me to far-flung places
Never afraid to take chances
And never ever ends up feeling sorry

She’s young and reckless
(She’s hot and restless)
Sometimes I can’t help but worry
When she takes me on a ride
... my imagination-gone-wild!

We all have many facets, many faces, many moods. You have painted a vivid self-portrait in words. As only a very talented poetess can.10, for you. Warm regards, Sandra

She and She! Thank God they communicate with each other. Normally people spend their whole lives without acknowleding the existence of alter ego; a nice thought, sonya!

You call it your Alter Ego. I'll call it your higher self. That part of you that lies deep inside and emerges when you relax your tidy mind and give it wings. Beautifully written poem with a thoroughly satisfying conclusion. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
