A mirror, a reflection
they say a gateway to the soul.
But how can we judge the thing we see when it is so well known?
In it you will only find
what has been seen before,
covered in changing costumes
but with a never changing core.
It speaks some awesome tales
that sink into your mind,
but let it be known that reflections have the craftiness to lie.
Mirrors speak no truths, only reflect what is known,
soley in the eyes of others can the truth be shown.
So when you take to soul searching only have a glance
at the picture thrust at you from behind the dirty glass.
Look to the world of fowards
to find an honest tale,
because in the looking glass you will search without avail.

Everyone's crazy. You know why? We all want to be normal. Well, we cant define normal, and, the people you can point at and say, well isn't he/she normal are rare. Doesnt that kind of defeat the pupose of normal? -My Friend

Wow! You're right that this a different approach than mine, but I really like this too! Sorry it took so long for me to find this, when I was checking for it a lot I never found it, and then I stopped using teenink for a while. But, I saw your comment and came right over. And now I'm glad i did!
