Strange Change (poem)

Updated on May 14, 2013

Strange

The change

Destiny

Put over me

I woke up one day

To a whole new display

Gazing from my mirror there

Bewilderment there filled our stare

Was this the same person that we knew

The marvel which our wonder once danced to

Sitting here with all that we’ve been through

Moments mere words find hard to share

Heartbeats awaken their flare

Coming to this array

Silence guides our way

Until we see

Clarity

So strange

Change

      How did I know before turning on the video it was gong to be "Man in mirror" by Michael Jackson. Despite his crazy life he was a musical genius. I always taught this done when I did our poetry unit in Language Arts class. I even too k a day and covered it in my Spanish classes. Now that said-I love your poem -what a powerful message! The end result of looking at the man in the mirror. So well done and the physical shape of the poem is so cool. You are a poetry master! You could teach poetry at a college or university and students would be lined up to get in your course-I know ! So don't even say no way. Beautiful and wonderful! Your writing is superb!

      the mirror awakes us to who we are when we see the person who isn't the person we think we are .
