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


I look in the mirror-
They hold your soul you know.
And someone I’ve never been sure of,
Stares back.

I look in the mirror-
They are the start of stories.
And whispers I can’t really hear,
Filter back.

I look in the mirror-
They reflect all they see.
And sometimes I close my eyes,
Against what this mirror has seen.

I look in the mirror-
A dare at the party.
They laugh but don’t know,
That they eyes meeting mine don’t belong.

I look in the mirror-
All silver and shiny,
And don’t fear the darkness,
That we both have known.

I look in the mirror-
Dusty and old,
But still shining, and wonder-
What will it be like when I’m grown?

I look in the mirror-
They hold your soul you know.
And someone I’ve never been sure of,
Stares back,
And whispers the tales of old.

She’s young and she’s pretty,
But over the years she grown wise,
And in the depths of her dark greenish eyes
I see that this mirror will survive.

I loved this, especially the last stanza! I wrote a poem about looking at my reflection before, but it came out depressing. What I like about this is that you're reflecting and taking things on a more positive note. Great job!

I love how you use - in your poems. It's really nice and something that is unique to you, I've never really seen that. I also especially like when you said : "I look in the mirror- They hold your sould you know."
That's probably my fav line! Very nice poem!

It is a wonderful poem. Shows deep feelings. I recently wrote a first chapter of a novel, The haunts of Love. It is my first entry. Will you please give me some feedback on it when time permits you?
