    Mirroring
    all that I am
    reality settles
    with calm devastation
    as I turn bravely
    to face the crunching force
    of my demise

    Superb language, you've used very powerful adjectives and they really create a lot of impact and emphasise the struggle which this poem describes.

    one criticism would be that it doesn;t flow very well, the language does but the way it is structured causes too many hesitations throughout the poem

    What a great poem. Very sad and heart touching. Imagery is excellent. Very well done.

    Mirroring
    all that I am
    reality settles
    with calm devastation
    as I turn bravely
    to face the crunching force
    of my demise

    Loved the closing stanza.
    Excellent!
    Take Care Cindy

    Hi Holly. I have been a member of this site for 11 years now but have been active only since April of this year. I looked for this poem because this is the only poem I have in my memory (I was in high school back then!). This greatly stirred something in me the first time I read this ten years ago. I really hope you get back and inspire us once again. This poem was just so beautifully written.
