Author's Note

I do have a certain person in mind for this poem, but I realize that it can fit more than one. Oh, and yes M, you did guess the correct POV in my last poem. So, read and review if you will.


Perhaps I should have listened,

Taken time to see,

That there was another way,

I didn't have to go it alone.

But I had to fight the good fight,

Because my cause was just.

And, at the time,

I truly believed

That the ends would justify the means.

Little did I know

What it would cost me in the end,

My friends.

And while they still stand by my side,

I see the doubt clouding their faces.

So now I can't help but wonder why

The monster that I see

Is in my mirror

Staring back at me.
