View of Self

View of Self

A Poem by Dannyisawriter


When he looks in the mirror

He sees a lot of things

I wish he could see himself clearer

But he always compares himself to the kings



When I look at my reflection

All I see are the scars

And the imperfection

Nothing but a bunch of flaws that need to be hidden behind bars



I want him to see that’s he my son

A child whom I dearly love

But he constantly feels the need to run

And try to hide from me thereof



I see what I’ve done

I see all the filth within

No one could stand to have me for a son

Not someone full of my sins



If only he could see that I have forgiven

Then he’d be able to forgive himself

And he’d accept all the gifts I have given

If only he would open his eyes to his self that resides in me

Beautiful! Love the conversation layout, and the wonderful message. Enjoyed your acbd rhyming. I wrote one and asked, in my reviewer notes, if anyone can tell me the name of that verse format. I liked the simple, easy to digest message of love that you revealed.

Any way to use my imagination is my favorite pass time, and writing is my favorite way to express myself. I am unashamed to claim to be a Christian. And I hope that my writing will somehow be a positi.. more..
