The Fading Self

Another thorn in your crown
Or a thorn in your side
 I find that I'm neither
 I am that little voice
 When you don't listen 
 The voice fades away
 Not your conscience
 but a mirror of understanding
 When you don't look into the mirror
 you can't understand, because nothing is reflected
 only the background 
 Perception of what might be

    Wayland, this is a gentle and deep concept and moment we should not fail to see, thank you for taking from what is in you and sharing it through this free verse form. This one moment makes fading seem a an unnecessarily feeling in the reverse image))... " love it...LINDA

    This was a very quick thought I wrote on another site, and saw that I had it. I decided to use it for the contest, but didn't change it hardly at all. I don't know it really wasn't meant to be a poem, but I thought maybe lol. Thank you for your lovely comment.
