The Reflecting Pool

I’ve tried to ditch the narcissism

That defined me from my youth

Up until my later years, as a grown-ass man-child

The one I am today, and at the same time, amn’t

Thinking retrospectively, I like to believe I’ve escaped from that cocoon,

But who knows, really?

This one is trying to be humble

For the sake of self-redemption

I keep telling myself I’m not the goof I used to be

But looking in the mirror, every single day,

There’s no denying, that’s not not me.

Introspection is Key
