Face in the Mirror is a collection of twenty-five poems of reflection and introspection. A lot of poetry is designed to express one's reactions and emotions towards the world outside - essentially presenting the poet's perspective on what is happening around him. Face in the Mirror reverses that process - it is a look deep inside, into one's own psyche. The poems are all intensely personal, but deal with themes and emotions that are truly universal. In an age where so much of our validation seems to depend on things and people external to us, the poems in this collection force a deep look within ourselves and the choices we make.
