Image in Glass

Form: Free Verse

The mirror reflects
and I make that comparison
between me and him
the random him who takes the higher ground
and I am merely a shadow
my skin that bit too smooth
beneath the soft hair on my face
in the beatitudes of attitudes
and dudes finding the difference
between blessed and cursed
but attitude is the strength
to crush those feelings
of not being good enough
not being tall enough
not being man enough
but I am strong enough
to face myself
in the mirror
