What Do You See?

When you look at me you see things I fear do not exist.

You see Strength, all I see is one who endures because there is no other choice

You see Courage, all I see is a man too scared to be himself

You see a Rock, all I see is sandstone barely holding himself together

You see Good, all I see is a man doing what others expect

The man I see in the mirror is strained, faded, and lost.  The one you see is amazing, honourable, and confident.  I like your image of me better than my own.  So maybe I’ll stop being myself, and start being the man you see in me.
