 Musings Of A Clouded Mind

As I Am

I look in the mirror
and who do I see?
I've asked myself
a thousand times.
I've searched my heart,
explored my soul
as the years
so quickly pass.
More questions than answers
have come my way,
always seeking acceptance
for the roles I have played.
Presenting myself
as I'm expected to be,
yet, knowing, at last,
I can only be me.
As I am.
