Man in the mirror

images (1)

When expressions reflected in the mirror
Life refracted through my past
I danced with you like an innocent child
Sometimes I acted before you like a superstar
You have painted my moods
And endured my true colors
Whether it is hot or cold
Mirror does its job
Mirror is a true friend of man
And I am the man in the mirror

    So true. I love these lines “And you taught me to turn around, To see the ones running behind me”. Very wise 🙂

    Well is a really good thought and concept …..but the usages in the lines are more like sentences in some areas…..and short poetry is good as well.. it helps u concentrate more on the concept and gives beauty wen u put it down in a few words…just.. a suggestion…I do respect the right of the writer…..waiting for the next thought of yours…….

    Wonderful poem. Nicely said – great lines.

    Hi the man in the mirror
    For the mirror doesn’t lie
    For the man, does he lie?

      Hi Mylunar,a half truth is a whole lie.A mirror doesn’t lie, but we do lie.And a lie is loudest when we lie to our selves…Thank you so much for visiting my blog and commenting on my post! I really appreciate it! Anthony.

    Gud job antony……its really an awesome work. Loved it. . Its true that, we often run behind people who doesnt want to be wth us, and is blind to see who is waiting to hear a word frm us. Never too late to realise and appreciate the value of good friends, when we look behind and beside us. Friends are blessings always. Keep writing….its a gift frm God, to express urself n words. ( However, when the mirror shows u the people running behind u, to be ur frnds….dsnt dat contradict the concept dat ur mirror is ur only frnd and who wshs to b wth u???? its just my perception, and u mght hv hd a diff concept 😛 ).
