Stranger in the Mirror

Do you ever feel

that you can’t recognize

the face you see

in the mirror?

Your mind wants to tell you,

it persists

that it’s you.

But you don’t believe it.

You never do.

You see the face of a stranger.

There is nothing

familiar or comforting

about the image that you see.

Sometimes when you blink

there is a tiny flicker of hope,

a little spark,

substantiating the belief,

that the stranger in the mirror,

the unknown face you see

is somebody you used to



Do you have trouble recognizing yourself in the mirror sometimes?
