Sometimes
I like to stop
And stare at myself
In the mirror,
An image,
A photograph.

Sometimes
I like to look
Inside of myself,
Deciding, judging,
Which way
I want to go.

Sometimes
I think I'm moving,
But I go nowhere.
Scream when I
Find out I'm
Going the wrong way.

Sometimes
I reach for
Your hand, a
Comforting gesture,
Intended to calm
My erratic nerves.

Sometimes
I like to freeze
Time in place,
And Judge who
You are
And who I am.

Sometimes
I like to stroll
Down this empty
Street and see
Ghosts of absent
Children.

Sometimes
It's required
To take a photo
Of yourself
So you don't forget
The precious memories.

And who you used to be.
I....don't know what this is. XD I'll figure out something soon and try to interpret the twisted words strung together in ways that don't make sense my brain likes to come up with.

I really like this poem, Mysty! It's saying that... we have to remember who we are, not just on the outside, but on the inside, too.

I think :P

Anyways, I really like the short, choppy lines, it works really well with the poem structure. ^^
