I face the mirror
The same image stares back that always has
Yet there's something different there
Something I've never had

Besides these material things i've adopted
-All the peircings I now adorn
Something inside glows through me
That hasn't shown a glimpse since I was born

Do I still want all the same things
Do I still have all the same things
Do I still care like I use to
Do I still care what life has to bring

Yes, everything I've had remains
I still have my dreams and fears
I still have my family and friends-now more
Though I've gained quite a few smiles and tears

Yes, I still care about everything I always have
In fact, there's more to care about now
And I'm so anxious, still, to see what more life has to offer
I'm going to live it as long as allowed

But do I still want the same things?
That family, job and stability
But now with someone I'd have never guessed

And that's it, I see
That's what's pushing out through me
I'm higher than I've ever been
Or ever thought I'd be

He's lifted my heart and it flies
With wings I've never before seen or known
He fills my soul, creates my every smile
And my love for him continues to grow

And I wish some things weren't the same about me
I wish I had more courage for him
So I could say everything, express everything that has come to be
I try my best though for him

I'd say nothing has changed about me
And everything but one proves that true
It's amazing how that one makes everything feel as though it's changed
Makes you feel a whole new you

Now, maybe if it weren't for him
There wouldn't have been a doubt in my mind of being the same
Thankgod for him though
Because now I know why my life feels rearranged

A Scared Heart, Speaks, You

LinzAy, I have read, many of your poems and through all the expressions of your heart, I say to you as a friend true, but, one you do not know. His words may fly, as the wings, of an Eagle, still, the words, need a resting place. Only. because, I as a poet, who has read your heart, say be careful Darlin, of all the words, you will hear, just, to get to you, so many words, have eagles wings. Didn't mean, to bust a heart's bubble, yet since we all care for you, we send this warning, from scared hearts, but not your own, just a warning, LinzAy, protect your heart. Yes, I love this thought, more, than the poem. -MartinV
