Dancing With The Shadows

The best way
to get to know yourself
is to see yourself
mirrored in others' eyes
Trying to understand
oneself in solitude
is like chasing
your own shadow,
I have no desire
to dance
with the shadows
any longer..

    Thank you for your comment on my poem, 'Heaven's Smile'. I thought I would read one of yours as well & this one really appealed to me. It is so simple yet beautifully stated. I gave it a resounding 10.
