Self – Reflection
© 2010 Syneeda Penland
Staring back at me, at times
with a twinkle in my eye.
Able to reveal what I’m thinking
whether it’s the truth or a lie.
Able to detect the joy
or the sadness that I feel,
looking beyond a painted illusion
exposing what is real.
A lonely spirit whose soul is lost
becomes vulnerable to human needs.
Man’s desire to feed upon the flesh
by destroying faith and planting seeds.
You can’t hide from what you see before you,
a painted illusion, an art of perfection.
The eyes are a pathway to your soul
and so is the mirror of
Self - Reflection.
