Looking into the Mirror

"Looking Into the Mirror"
Sudden realizations iced up his core 
To form the frozen image of a man 
He who stared in reflected embarrassment
While sobering silence takes over the room
As this was not the person he was to become
But for childish dreams that stuck with him
Fantastic machinations that warped a man's mind
So he'd remain a child who never grew up
And had to face his parents on occasions 
The adult to them is just on the exterior
Because he made a living selling his voice
Though in using it to say I'm sorry
His parents would have to wait 
Just like the forever he has waited 
To hear them say we love you for what you are
A child never grows too old 
For their parents open arms

    And people wonder why God is so important. All God cares about, if He exists, is who we are. Our parents too, no doubt waited a lifetime for their parents to really get and to love them for who they really were. It can flow both ways you know. Best wishes!

    An excellent polished poem—a compelling use of the senses—a smooth read—and thematic interests which draw the reader into the story.
