Did i Lose YOU?

I thought the reflections of mirrors were supposed to project the truth
But extracting your honesty is more painful than pulling a tooth
What if all we see is just fallacies of our own imperfections
Insecurities we secure in to protect our flawed self perceptions
Fanatically avoiding rejections so we syringe injections
Praying that the mirror illustrates beautiful deceptions
Did i Lose YOU?

Looking in the mirror and I ask myself
Which self-inflicted casualties made me mask myself
Underneath the peaks of my conceit is where I find myself
Seeing through the hour glass of my ambitions did I blind myself
Was it arrogance for me to not believe in existence of ceilings
Maybe too much confidence made me lose consciousness of my feelings
Why am I smiling yet my eyes see tears
Wearing the veneer of courage but sensing my own fears
Did i Lose me
Inside of me
I ask myself as I stare
At my own reflection only grasping pieces of me inside of there
Did i Lose YOU?

My name is Halim Flowers and I am an author, poet, blogger(CriminalU.co), and at-risk youth advocate. I have been incarcerated for 18 years, since I was 16 years of age for aiding and abetting a felony murder in a case where I was not the shooter and the person charged as the gunman had his case dismissed and was never tried for this offense. I know it sounds crazy but it is my destiny for now and I embrace. My passion in life is learning and helping to enlighten and inspire others, especially helping to develop the character and lives of young men. I was featured in an Emmy award winning documentary about my experiences as a child at the adult D.C. Jail titled "Thug Life In DC"(See Thug Life In DC at YouTube) and I have authored nine books in the genres of self-help, prisoner reform, juvenile justice, memoir, and poetry(See Halim Flowers at Amazon.com). I very contrite for my past criminal offenses and seriously committed to helping our youth to understand "Victim's Impact" and breaking the "school-to-prison pipeline".
