I Look Around

Written by Jacob Ibrag

A stopper to stare at as I brush

my teeth. Another reflection staring back

at me. Familiar. It’s always too familiar. I inch

my face to the window in the sink. Explosions

on the other side as the other dissipates. I

look around and it is all the same. I

look back and it is empty.

Over the years Eyes + Words has turned into a wonderful budding family of over fifteen thousand people across all platforms. It’s surreal and humbling to know that the art of poetry and story is alive and thriving. That being said, I hope that the creation of the Eyes + Words Writers Group serves as a vehicle and launch pad to help and support writers and the aspiring ones to keep manifesting words that many out there are searching for everyday. So go on and contribute, lets elevate together. Everyone is encouraged to share their experiences with anything involving writing.

  1. The self, is reflected in more ways than one, and each reflection is real, compare to the next ones…

  2. Just goes to show you, what we see in the mirror is not always accurate.

  3. Often we see multiple reflections of oneself through the mirror. You have worded them very nicely 🙂

  4. Hi Jacob
    The narciss flower fell and drowned in the lake where everyday he was admiring his beauty
    The lake cried
    Every day she was admiring her beauty in the eyes of the narciss
    True reflection lies in the eyes of the beholder
    Happy Tuesday!
