to live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong


Wiping the steamed mirror,
a reflection appears.
My haunting eyes stares back
Black pupils are deep with horror,
shallow with guilt.
There used to be something there
hope, will
I don't remember which
but now, i only see the end.


The author's comments:
During my darker days, i was appalled at my own reflection and this was a way for me to try and understand what i saw.
