  • MIRROR, MIRROR...

    Mirror, mirror on the wall,
    I do not know this face at all!
    It can’t be me, that crepey skin
    The droopy eyelids, double chin.
    When did my neck begin to sag?
    God, I’m staring at a hag.
    Impossible—just yesterday
    I disco-danced the night away;
    My whole life before me, so many choices…
    (Tho’ I wish I knew then to ignore those voices
    That told me I wasn’t good enough!)
    Such glorious highs, but the lows SO tough;
    With each heartbreak I thought I’d die of shame,
    But pulled myself up and jumped back in the game.
    Then all those decades just magically passed
    I know I was there, it just happened too fast.
    The husband and family never occurred
    So now I’ve got cats--they don’t argue, they purr.
    And while my insides don’t match the outside you see
    To know me is to love me and I’m finally free
    To accept what I understand to be true
    The more I learned the less I knew.
Working...
