    It wasn't until I looked in the mirror
    That I began to see things clearer
    Now looking back
    Sometimes I just have to laugh
    How I ever thought life was so bad
    All the things I learned...everything I had
    No mother to lean on, or cry to
    No father, no...nothing new
    A home in which I was a stranger
    An ever winding staircase of danger
    Family only to ridicule
    An anger raged, a storm began to fuel
    And off I went out on my own
    To find an identity I had never been shown
    Lost, afraid...and alone
    The fear within me had grown
    Still I urged onward, shallow in my mind
    Hoping I would someday find
    The truth I sought so many years
    Through empty cries, and foggy mirrors.

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
