Despair
 
Man in the mirror
looking at me.
Seeing the anger
that no one should see.
Knowing my secrets,
drawing me near.
Sharing emotion, 
feeling my fear.

Man in the mirror
with crosses to bear.
Emotionless statue
with glassy eyed stare.
Society’s outcast,
distant from grace.
Heart cold as ice
in a devil’s embrace.

Man in the mirror
of dwindling light.
Humanity’s exile,
creature of night.
Cold blooded vessel,
empty inside.
Craving compassion
...access denied.

Man in the mirror,
staring at me.
Time for redemption,
time to be free.
No more will I suffer,
no more will I run.
The time is upon us,
………I reach for the gun………
