My Reflection

Location

As he watched him

He begins to change

He knew he couldn't be the same man

until he achnolewdged who he was

 

He wanted to change

change was much more than appearance

change was much more than thoughts

change to him was change itself

 

he feared it

but while watching him

he hated everything he did

he hated the thought of him

he hated him

 

Days went by

he began to watch him again

still no change

he still hated him

 

He bagan to rethink everything

he wanted to acquire everything everyone else had

deep down

he wanted to be him

 

A year later

he found himself watching him

he found him

the real him

I stepped away from the mirror

and began to cry
