Mirror Talk

What if I cared with

all my heart, would you

like me then…What if

I shared with you all

my thoughts, would you

like me then…


If I was the typical

sugar, bettered with

a bit of raw spice,

so uniquely endearing

and sincerely nice,

would you then like me

for me, would you like

me complete…


or shall I cower to realize

my crime of being all these

things and much more,

not at all perfect but

a perfect bore…


Though that is your

image of me that’s so

awfully off, my flaws are

not ugly; they are the

beauty of my growth…


a being which lives a

natural existence,

which cannot be

shamed with people’s

unorthodox resistance…


Yes. My flaws and

failures are easy to see;

I'm not cut up immortal

or brand a size 3…


I may have eyes that

a crow did not spare,

but he cawed as my

laughter filled the warm air…



Source

And, as now, I may

have some silver strands

tucked in with my mane

of brown, but they too

shimmer quite lovely as

like a crown…


a crown that I wear to

show the beauty into

my life, graced so gracefully

without being trite…


This, I ask you, do you

not now see, the beauty

that lives inside of me…


do you not see my flaws

as conquer, a conquer of

life I did not falter,

or give to a world full

of charlatans and

fraudsters…


For if I cannot continue

to walk my own path, then

what is this life worth

and why was I birthed…


Now, one last time

I must ask; look into

the mirror and please

don’t look down, do you

like what you see,

do you like me for me…

      I love the message in your poem. "My flaws are . . . the beauty of my growth." Powerful line among others. Thanks for the motivation.
