I woke up this morning
and walked past the mirror
suddenly
I stopped to see in terror
is it me in there or is it not?
something has changed
I remember
my eyes were not so sad
I remember
my face was not so pale
what happened?
Ah! now I remember
I have been robbed
I have been stolen
I have been violated
my dignity....
my humanity...
myself,
now I'm not surprised
when I walk past the mirror
and see this dull creature
which is
me

heba,

I hear you with this one. I remember as a boy hating to look at the kid I saw in the mirror. I hated being me, and with such a passion. That kid seemed like some sort of creature, not a boy at all, except for the empty shell.

You say this:

I understand how you feel and I hear you; I have been there. But let me suggest that we never lose our dignity or humanity, though many times it feels that way. It's our dignity and humanity that enable us to fight back, as you are doing as you write your poem. You will continue to fight, my friend, and you will win in the end.

Much love,
Larry
