Whitman's poem was incredible... but, John.. yours is horrendous! Do you
actually think that was good??

Veil of Time ( Johnny through the looking glass)
I got soap in my eyes
I touched the cloth to face
to regain lost vision
I glanced in the mirror
Staring back at me is someone I knew
Black, soft, unkempt hair
Big, brown, innocent panda bear eyes
Before vision and thought connect
I hear him call:
"Mom, Mom I've got soap in my eyes, again-
"I'm coming," the rescuer responds
The lady not waiting grabs his head
with one hand and dunks him face down
into the basin full of healing water
A swoosh, then artful, gentle dabs
with a holey shroud
"It's better, Mom,"
We say in uniSon.

I believe this poem is simply telling the truth. Your appearance on the
outside is completely different that your emotional insides. Sometimes a
person can have a great appearance and have the most dreadful life. OR>>>>
Sometimes you become vain and forget about others and it takes over your
true self, makes you mean and cold at times.

What lies behind the masks that we wear? This is what Whitman is talking
about. The inner pain, lies, and the inner secrets. This is truly an
inspitational poem. It challenges everyone to peel away the fakeness and
look into ones heart!
