The prompt at NaPoWriMo today was to write a poem that incorporates the idea of doubles. I am going to be pre-writing the weekend’s poems today, and resuming with the prompts for the most part next week. An old friend is coming to town. Can’t wait to see her. Hope all of you have a fantastic weekend!
When we look in the mirror, there are two faces to see
The confident one that everyone else sees that says everything’s fine
Who gets up each day and faces the world with bravado and smiles
Exudes a confident air which makes others believe that they are complete
To see the other face, you have to look deeper into the reflection
Here you will see insecurity and the fear of not being enough
Worry about rejection or not being understood live deep within
Wondering if they will be turned away or scoffed at for their ideas
While both faces exist within each of us, there is a question to be asked
Why is it so difficult to see ourselves as others do?
