Featured Review on this writing by Ashley I Read

A monologue about being yourself.

How long, O how long will it be

Until you will notice me?

Must I be like your friend

Or your own enemy

To be part of reality?


How long, O how long are you blind

That it's me you cannot find?

Your face you think you see

Because the water is clear.

However, I do not appear.


How long, O how long will you dream?

Wake up! We can be a team.

We can resist our foe,

Keep the friends we know,

And I, Yourself, welcomed home.
