Man In The Mirror

Rating: 5.0
After he heard the shatter
He took a step back,
And realized his dream was just a single shard
Amongst thousands of his blessings

I put the pieces together
And found that I myself was broken,
Fragmented over time
With hair line fractures on my surface
At a moment's notice I'll be ready to crack

And when I shattered
The world took a step forward
And found a missing piece to the puzzle
That could have kept me together
Darrin McMiller Jr.

I admire the core message but I agree with Rebecca Paul, it needs something, though it was quite good.

Marieta Maglas is correct, this poem is a very philosophical view of life. Very good, my compliments. This is Arimoko Konshei.

Its not always one of conflict to be whole or into a number of pieces its the feelings that come with them and you showed your feelings with excellence amongst your written words.

i love how you worded phrases and all but it wasnt my favorite, gotta b honest. nothing really stuck out and captured my attention but it was still extremely well-written and thoughtful.
