Mirror

Are you listening to yourself?

Are you?

Are you listening to yourself?

This is the question circulating in and around my being. The question asked of me by one who holds a very clear, polished, stark, magnifying mirror to my bullshit. I hate it. I hate this reflection. And yet, I love and trust the mirror. 

I DON'T KNOW!

What does that even look like? Or is it sound like? 

What is it that you want? He asks. 

I wish it was that simple. What I want. 

What do I want?

I want you to listen to me

I'm listening, he says.

And he was

Listening.

So, who is it that is not listening to you?

...
...
...

EVERYONE!

No, he says, it's YOU!

You're not listening to yourself.
...
...
...
It's ALL You!
