Looking At My Reflection In Mirror - Poem by Fahim Sayed

I look at my reflection,
In the mirror
What do I see?
I see
A body with no soul,
I see
Eyes with no hope
I see
Shoulders that have given up

My reflection says it all,
Searching for creativity with
Impotent mind,
Doing things as if I am blind
Trying to innovate,
Something one of its kind

I look at my reflection,
In the mirror
What I don’t see,
I don’t see,
Will to change,
I don’t see
Passion to give more
I don’t see,
Energy to explore

My reflection is talking to me,
It says,
I am no one, lost for identity.
My reflection is laughing at me,
It questions,
Is this real me?

    Dear Fahim,
    we all are empty souls...
    don't worry, in that emptiness
    we can shower words
    may be it's called

    probably your best, when we really have to look inside ourselves we don't need a mirror. (Report) Reply

    A good write with alot of view of lack of self esteme, but sometimes, we all need to look at ourselves in the mirror, dont like what we see, change it, and move on... Very to the point with good charactor lines.
