I see it the mirror,

It stares right back at me

Dare I to like this image,

That I am forced to see.

Or dare I simply look away

From this darkness, and the shame.

Or crawl back in that inner hell,

My haven, and my name.

I know there is good, there has to be

In this shadow of a man.

Perhaps one day I’ll see it,

In this reflection where I stand.

-Antony King
