Who's Staring Back

When I look into the mirror

I don't recognize the person, I see

Staring back at me

I wonder how can that be

When it seems just yesterday

I was laughing and hugging my dad

With not a care or ache in the world

Or anything to make me sad

But now all I see

Is the deep secretive person

That is suppose to be me

As I ask myself when will I recognize

That person that is inside

Causing his innocence and trust to dim
