mirror moment

too many live in the hall of mirrors of others expectations
     of who they are ...
they live there so long
     they lose all memory of who they truly are
          lose all desire to be real

there is a death that occurs
    right while looking into those mirrors

a shattering, not of the mirror
   but of self

even to the point where the
      soundless scream of soul is silenced
         not by another
              but by self

only Love can penetrate this illusion
      and yet
         even in the new awareness
              there is a choice

allow the unwrapping of the grave clothes
        stay wrapped

the hold of the familiar,
      the known, 
         is at times
            is married to the fear of the unknown
