it's easy to talk about what we don’t understand


create shortcut stories we like to replace reality


and criticize  people that we can’t stand


or at least that's what I see


today I wasn’t quite me


when I looked at my reflection


it was like I became another entity


the image in my head reached perfection


and for a minute i almost believed I could flee


the surprise got me back to my chair


and I was again me


but for a minute I swear ,,,


my eyes burned with determination


my face was steady and I had a goal


I was not afraid or hiding away from every temptation


I think for a minute I was more alive than ever ,whole


and then it crossed my mind maybe that's was always me   


maybe when I was young people hated me a lot


that I hide  with everything that I can see


maybe I was just good at hiding not getting caught




◄ eternal slumber
