Strangers in the Mirror

Sometimes I look in the mirrorAnd I don’t recognize the person staring back at meLike passing strangers on a streetI stare blankly at my reflectionI ask myselfWhat will come of this beingWhat will come of this bodyI ask these questions like I am not the person staring back at meTwo eyesTwo feet on the groundBut it feels like eternity since I felt connected to the earth beneath meDoubt wavers in my mindUncertainty hangs in the air Dancing with its best friend, despair
I can’t even recognize the person staring back at meMaybe if I can reach her, I will feel complete againBut if I reach into the void and pull out nothing will I be able to accept thatAm I ready to fail over and and over againUntil I recognize the person staring back at meAnd can smile confidentlyKnowing that person is me
