let the music flow within your soul
spill the words from the cup of thought
dance to the beat of your own emotions
ignore the eyes of those who wish you harm
open your mind to the vision before you
close your eyes to the arrogance you hate
open your arms to the shadow you tried to destroy
the shadow that is you
listen not to the mouths of the popular
see not the pictures they want you to see
dance the dance that lives inside you
and let your spirit free
wipe away the tears you shed in dreams
as you gaze into the nothingness before you
as the mirror gazes back with eyes of pain
and try to love who you are

Wow.....three lines....three lines and this poem went from being a good poem to a great poem:

"as you gaze into the nothingness before you
as the mirror gazes back with eyes of pain
and try to love who you are"

What a ending!!

Excellent... ..I don't know about love who you are, but certainly be comfortable with who you are and others will be comfortable with you...

Really like your thoughts here, some might be more difficult then others, but all are possible with our minds willing to accept positive reflection.
