Poem: Refection of Life

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Reflection of Life" is a poem about looking back at one's past. Challenging himself in a new direction learning from his mistakes along the way. Making each second of time count finding his treasure in a dream before the moment disappears.

Learning from Mistakes


Reflection Of Life

Reflection in the mirror
eyes peeling back layers of time,
feeling knots of pain,
heartaches of the past.

Unfamiliar territory,
creating challenges
from lessons learned,
discovering newfangled desires.

Making each second of count
following a rainbow
finding treasure in a dream.

Fulfilling her heart’s desire,
living life
before the moment fades away.


Without reflection, we go blindly on our way, creating more unintended consequences, and failing to achieve anything useful.

— Margaret J. Wheatley
