THE MIRROR:

 THE MIRROR:
Is the mirror a friend of yours?
Showing your beauty and charm.
Or is it very unfriendly,
Giving you cause for alarm?

Yesterday I had a shock,
A shock beyond compare.
For whilst looking in the mirror
Arranging my untidy hair.

It was then I notice IT.
More crows feet and tramlines on my face.
Showing the age of life,
That one cannot erase.

I felt really dejected.
What does people think of me.
I'm not being vain folk.
But the mirror dosen't lie you see.

So for the day I adorned the mirror
With a cover like above.
Until I can look at myself.
And be someone I love.

  1. The mirror can lie a bit, reflections can be tweaked.

  5. I just take off my glasses. That is the key to not seeing what I don't want to see. Or better yet- smile.

  7. A mirror is certainly a friend. It is the first instance before anyone else is given the privilege. The bastion of the first line of defense to help out.Very much so Yvonne!
