Reflection

A Poem by Victoria Lynn Hall

 Why do we behave like Vampires
    when the energy within us is endless?
 Why do we put out our own fires
    and then complain about the darkness?
  
 Why are we blind
    when we could just open our eyes?
 Why do we leave the truth behind
    and refuse to confront the lies?
  
 Do we see, as if in a mirror, only a backwards world?
 Are we lost in a distorted reflection?
 Will things ever get clearer, or only more blurred
    as we continue to judge and not question?
  
 No one can see the real me
    if they are afraid of their own vulnerability
 No one can see themselves
    if they are afraid of connecting with someone else
  
 And so we go untapped
    looking all over the map
    for what we need to live
 When the most renewable resource
    and the most powerful force
    is what each of us has to give 

A self taught artist and creative entrepreneur, Victoria Lynn Hall lives in the Kansas City area with 4 spoiled cats. She believes in art and the magic of kindness.
