My Face In Your Mirror - Poem by Dolly Staaf Carlson

I don't know how ego is properly used
or how to keep spirit from being abused
(Perhaps schism is only a thing of the mind
and Reality buffers Truth
to assuage humankind)
My past and present identity is mixed
The positive and negative between and betwixt
I'm probably whatever you'd like me to be
Or is that another sign of senility?
A little levity is good for the soul
And, with God, it's okay to play the fool
Who I am and what I do
is just another part of you
