When I Look In My Mind - Poem by Francis Duggan

When i look in my mind don't like the hidden me
I'm not the type of person i would like myself to be
Others can be our reflection would you not agree
What we dislike in others in our own selves we see
An inflated ego of our compassionate side does take toll
It is something that is hard to keep under control
I do struggle with my own ego every day
To keep the arrogance from surfacing in me at bay
In our own little ways most of us can be small
But it's true there is a nicer side to us all
The air that inflates the ego known as pride
But the arrogant too do have their softer side
When i look in my mind i do not like what i see
There is so much darkness in the hidden me.
