'Reflection' by Jacky Long

In a mirror it is the second me

It is me because I see a double of myself

But it is not me, it’s not my face

It’s a shadow of me

My ghost


It is only a reflection of me

But it is not me, it is a ghost of god

This picture belongs to him

It is not my face, it is a double Jacky

A mirror reflection of me.


This is me now

I am facing all of you

But in the mirror I am facing a reflection of god

To find out who I am I would look outwards

Not into a mirror

Which makes a cold image of me.
