When i look mirror and all I can think when look being that I see
Their Is no other way to describe the person but simply and 'me '
I look at myself
Staring deeply and bold
Knowing that since the last time I looked i've gotten much more then just old

I look at her satisfied face see some full of triumph 
Who accomplish a great deal for here years
I look into her eyes and also see fear
I see courage but also see self doubt 
I see she had problem but she can also work them put

I stare and try to understand what I've become 
From the wonder accomplishments
To the secret I kept 
The unknown things, i've done
Since when I had so many secrets that's discoveries I fear 

I see see eye full of memories
Some young 
some old
Some suppressed like a untimely sneeze
Some treasured like gold

I look at old school ' all about me ' project and favorite things enumeration 
As I read them , a thought becomes clear ,you see
How was this 5th grader ever be me !!
So many changes
So good and some bad 
So many memories 
Some happy ,  some sad
A thought pop head as think of the changes that have taken place to me
No one else I rather be

I wrote this poem after trying to feel out a profile for something and finding an old school project which was "all about me" and comparing the too And realizing how different they are.
As a side note and a bit of vocab
