I'VE COVERED MY MIRRORS:
Since having all my trials and tribulations
My appearance was the last thing on my mind.
Last night however I looked in the mirror,
To me it wasn't very kind.
I need to get my hair done,
I am getting that done next week---fine.
But what I was most shocked at
On my face were more "Tram Lines."
It shook my esteem entirely,
Now I'm not a person who's vain.
But I didn't see them creep up on me,
What with family issues and pain.
Out came all the face creams,
But to no avail.
I again looked into the mirror,
How I wanted to wail.
So I have covered the mirrors ,
I've only two anyway.
But I don't want to see tram lines,
When in the apartment I stay.
I know the saying is
"Beauty is only skin deep"
But dear friends last night.
How I wanted to weep.
