Glazed Existence

Sometimes it’s too painful to delve beneath the surface

Some mirrors lay dormant or remain hidden forever

Some lives are coated with a superficial purpose

Some people actually consider this existence clever

Sometimes it’s much easier to look out than within

Some mirrors are shattered just lying in pieces

Some existences are glazed with lives paper thin

Some people rejoice of the thought when life ceases

Sometimes to live free takes a little bit of trying

Some mirrors can be fixed or replaced. I do hope you hear me.

It’s better than a glazed existence which is the same as slowly dying

Please stare into yourself until your complexion returns clearly.

Look into your eyes

Now deeper

Hold yourself there

Now further

See through your guise

Now wander

Become more aware

This is who you really are, share this existence and you’ll be amazed

You’ll understand that your life, your reflection and your entire existence wasn’t meant to be lived……………….glazed.

I have a desire to help people with my writing whether through stories, poetry or personal contact. I’ve seen and been through a lot in my life and have learned the purpose of it is to help others
