Someone needs to lose some weight. Another needs to be more meticulous. Yet another is not thoughtful enough. 

We spend most of our time observing the lack of others. But what of our own? They are admittedly difficult to admit. 

Yet, we must do so because we cringe when someone else points them out. Haven't we done the same?

So how do we accept the mirror view of ourselves? Ownership of our flaws is a start., as is listening to suggestions. We've to be honest about and reflect on them. 

Enjoy these free verses.


On the wall

Are we the 


of all?


On the wall

Who owns you

You come

When he calls?


On the wall

Do we hear

Your voice

At all?


On the wall

We must learn

To take

Each fall.
