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,
and
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.
