When I look at you I see myself undone... potential untapped brilliance undiscovered creativity unexplored vacuum sealed in the cellophane of childhood. When I look at you I see myself unveiled... impulses unedited words unscripted feelings unrestrained the stark honesty of an undiluted soul. I see the me I wish I was. The flesh and blood reflection of all my could-haves and would-haves and should-have-still. I see the me I wish I wasn't. The pint-sized mimic of all my fearfulness and mindlessness and my selfish will.
little mirror little me Be better than I am, Better than I could be. little mirror little me Like me, but so much more Extraordinary.
So here’s me, waxing poetic for National Poetry Writing Month.
