The Man in the Mirror 
I take a look in the mirror, what do I see
Is it a man or a beast I feel deep within me?

Am I the red guy called the Devil?
Being mean to all that is true to me

Do I need to cut myself with a knife?
To show that I bleed like the next guy

To take my own life
So I will not take another


So who is the Man in the Mirror?


Am I viewing, the positive one
That is staring back at me, the clean cut one

The one that has the strength to live
To never run away and be true to yourself

To share the real you and be liked for you
For so many seem to they want the beast

For I can never be him for I was raised to be caring
To learn to open my heart and arms for cuddling


So who is the Man in the Mirror?

Thought provoking!
Human beings are complex and multifaceted . Most of us will relate to having a side of ourselves that we are not happy about. Perhaps our personalities are conscious decisions and we don't want to see our darker aspects. Well written and introspective!

thoughtful~very well done
I enjoyed reading this. You described something we all face and can easily relate to. We all have our moments and sometimes it is not easy to see something in yourself you do not like but having the courage to look...and change is the test of true character.
This is a wonderful and thoughtful write. I appreciate the message you have placed so clearly before us if we but look.
Keep up the good work. Your transparent messages are most refreshing and I hope you just keep them coming!
Blessings~Angel~

I truly understand what you mean. Sometimes I feel my hands and head are not connected at the time I am writing...it feels different when you know it is coming through you, not from you. We are a channel for God's love and he speaks to each of us to our own need and understanding. Thank you so much for words penned by your hand as he works through you blessing others. Blessings~Angel~

I think many people ask themselves these questions.Everyone has a good and bad side but in the end we have the choice of what we want. Interesting poem it makes you ponder these questions.

There are no comments on this review.

Deeply thought out
This is a powerful work. Great flow. The words are sometimes harsh and other times as if you forgive yourself for what you think you see in your confusion when you look in the mirror. Great job.

This is great. There is a Jekyll and Hyde like struggle within this poem. Kind of a question of who the real you is . Let me tell you my friend you don't have an evil bone in your body. Thank you for sharing this with all of us.

I found this piece intriguing - it says to me that when we look in the mirror we can see more than one person or force perhaps within us. Sometimes we might feel split as to who we should be, and how we should behave. It seems in your case, you want the warm and loving 'you' to dominate and take preference. Some good thought put into this one - thanks for sharing.
