When you look in the mirror

are you happy with what you see?

Is the person staring back

the one you always wanted to be?

Or is he someone unhappy

and just trying to get by?

Instead of that young man

who always reached for the sky.

When did you give up

and decide that this was it?

No point in going out

and it was here you would sit.

What will it take to realise

that there can be more than this?

Life is not just about

sitting down in order to reminisce.
