Poem: What Do You See ?

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

What do you see is a poem describing how many of us hide our real self like we are trapped inside a mirror. We reach for dreams we can not touch instead of looking at what is right in front of us.

"I See You" by Luke Bryan

What Do You See?

Trapped

within a mirror,

no where can we roam.


Traveling through life

surviving on a dream,

not listening

to our inner soul.


Hiding in a secret place

grasping what we can't touch,

not allowing our eyes

to see the true reflection

of what is standing right in front of us.

I don't have to chase extraordinary moments to find happiness-- it's right in front of me if I'm paying attention and practicing gratitude.
