The younger me

Looking in my mirror
I’m not sure who I see.
Someone is looking back
could it be me?
I look at her face
and into her eyes.
Does she recognize me
or am I a surprise?
I look at her deeply
I look at her long.
I know we’re connected
that feeling is strong.

The me on the outside,
the me deep within -
how to connect them,
how to begin?
When people connect
with the person that’s me -
what do they relate to -
what is it they see?

Me on the inside
is all over the place.
Who do they relate to
when they look at my face?
