One last look back before stepping across the threshold
I didn't know I could be so bold
But here I stand
A full grown man
Manufacturing reality with these two hands
And you know what?
I like what I see
When I look in the mirror, this is me
Of course I have addictions and afflictions
Times when I don't listen
But I am doing my best
Mercy for the self
That's the test
I love poetry.
