Look into the mirror;
tell me what you see
A child of endless wonder,
or a hopeless mockery?

Gaze at my reflection;
tell me which is nearer
The monster standing here
or the angel in the mirror?

I am the silent maverick;
I only undermine
The hope and dreams of men
to commandeer the hands of time.

Standing staid and haughty;
I am meant to be alone
I drift in tides of blood;
for my sins, I canít atone.

Do you know the source;
is there an image in the rain?
Do I make you smile
or drive your heart insane?

Gazing through the mirror,
do you wonder if Iím you?
Do you love salvation
or the sin that you renew?

Swim into your tears;
do they taste of death?
If only you would bleed,
I may take away your breath.

Dive into the water;
do you hear my pleasant call?
If only you would wake;
I was never there at all.

Step into the mirror;
do you see the answer?
To dream and never wake
leads only to this cancer.

Lost from sight of grace,
in reflections you redeem
Your blemish upon this world
in this dream within a dream.
Do you know the difference between you and your reflection?
Tell me if you, are you here or in the mirror?

you can't choose which of them you are... both are the same, but your reflection is crual at the point of telling you who you are....
people try to be someone, someone beloved and populair, the reflection in the mirror contains both the angel and the monster... gazing at you with the emotion you choosed to show, and at tge same time it tells you that you're not that guy you want to be.. reflecting all your weak spots, making you uncertain about yourself. don't listen to it, it makes you crazy. both the angel an d the monster are not who you really are... the angel is the perfect you that you'll never become, the monster is the opposite, telling you're ugly, inner and outer... you are NOT ugly, you are NOT perfect, you're somewhere in between, if you're able to find balance between these opposites, then you are a beautiful person, cause then you are yourself......

try looking in the mirror, try and see who you are, always relativate,,, don't get uncertain, accept who you are and when you get from the mirror, you'll feel satisfied

a very beautiful poem that makes you think about yourself
greetings, whereismicecream

Perhaps one of these days I will.

Let's hope. I'd also like to meet your friend Aroba--why does that name sound so familiar...
Lil-Angelic-Star Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2005
you did meet him at one ponit at least antonio did. you'd like him if you met him he's cool but at the same time he's very smart when it comes to history, battles & battle plans, philsophy and some other things. he went with me on the ROTC trip. He got a kick out of it.
DB-Raphael Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2005
Sounds cool. Perhaps we all shall meet soon. I'm sure it'd be truly interesting.
Lil-Angelic-Star Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2005
