Who stares back at me?

I stand in front of a mirror
The reflection is watery
I peer at the mirror of my decisions
I am swallowed into the waters of reality
I have let the image swallow me
I fell into the world’s deceit
Dreams are unfulfilled, childish
I lost them to become an adult
Now I stand in front of their mirror
I feel like I am in a circus
I do not know this person in front of me
My fist smashes through the lie
Who stares back at me now?
