Shadow in the Night

The Other Side - Poem by Shadow in the Night

Our lives are full of questions
Difficult decisions to make.
Every day we come upon crossroads.
Which path do I take.

I stop to look in the mirror,
to question who I am.
But the person staring back's eyes are more severe.
It's a different me.

On the other side a person looks back,
who's me but not.
Who took a different path,
and didn't like what they got.

Do I want me for who I am?
Or what I could be.
Do I like that other me.
Do I like what I see?

Thee other side holds a different reality.
We have to make the choice to choose.
If we want to be the person in that reality,
or who we are in this one.

It's your choice.
