something staring back at me

something staring back at me

A Poem by Bewitching Sensation
"

peek into ur soul ..you may not like what you see..

"


Sometimes I stop just a second

And glance in the looking glass

Esoteric in my eyes, mystified

Do I really  know me?

 

Who am I? Where’s me?

I try to peek into my soul

Just for one second

Do I see hate or Love?

 

I cant go there too long

Because I begin to witness

Someone staring back at me

Is it a preceding life ?

 

Or is it the radical me

Wanting to unchain

To have new adventures

Maybe my wild side

 

Fear suddenly takes hold

I quickly avert away

Not wanting to connect

To the innermost, the soul

The third stanza I think really puts it into perspective. It's as though if we read between the lines we discover the other you who made the mistakes you intend to make (Wanting to unchain to have new adventures maybe my wild side) and stopping, knowing the danger it would bring this new entity of your being.

Hope I explained that right? Anyway, a really good poem. I liked it.

"Who am I?" - one great question that has always been asked but never really been found an answer to.
The thing is, nobody really KNOWS who they are consciously, even if as certainly no one has any trouble BEING him- or herself.
Then again, I doubt there is anyone who likes oneself the exact way they are, with all the good and bad parts, so it becomes even harder to indulge in thourough self-reflection.
I liked your reflection on this search of who you really are. Never forget to just BE.
Fascinating, thoughtful poem, brilliant job!

i have been through the journey already :) well half way there now this was written a few years ago... read more
I like this as I'm reminded so much of you and your friendship. There are questions here that I often asked myself as we chatted wondering/worrying about the different scenarios you were in. The perception of self is very therapeutic and once written down can help in discovering the real you, both for the writer and reader. This is a tempting insight...
