From behind the mask of an unknown man,
Comes a child with a smile
And loving, laughing eyes.
Gemini’s hitherto hidden twin
Steps out to greet the world,
Seeking to bridge the gap
With warm words,
Speaking and singing,
Dancing and reaching out,
Taking the mask from the unknown man,
To see and be seen.
Laughing child and unknown man,
Twins now whole.
The mask is gone.
I am the child,
I am the man.
Phil Smalley is the moderator for the August Reading Group. He will lead a discussion on aspects of the self. His poem (above) is a poetic expression of acknowledging the co-existence of the inner child and the adult self.
