No inspiration today. The snow covered it all and I, cold and numb all over, couldn’t even drive myself to write. I’ll write a poem muna. I’ll try to write the usual post next time, promise. Wala pa lang talaga ako sa mood. God bless!
Seeing Myself at the Sideview Mirror
It is indeed strange to find ourselves
staring back at our own reflection,
our presence echoed by a shiny surface
that birthed a startled image,
pausing at an oddly-framed reality
we can easily recognize to be ouselves.
We relish at these fleeting portraits
of the candid quotidien,
keen to root out imperfections
by touching our hair, adjusting a collar,
or pulling back our shoulders,
a two-second critique of a personhood
we thought we knew well, but don’t.
Pansinin nyo naman ang bago kong bubong! Read the page above on the artist’s expalanation of my header. God bless ulit!
