Image In The Mirror


A smoker wants some sympathy
He wants you to understand
The terrible anxious feeling he has
When he's under the cigarette's command

But he also wants you to believe
That he is in total control
That he smokes because he enjoys it
This image is also his goal

No wonder he cannot break from this dreadful affliction
He doesn't know what's fact and what is fiction
Well, just to make things a little clearer
When you look right in the mirror

The image of you being in control
Is wrong, you're just a poor lost soul
Once this truth you fully accept
Escaping addiction, you'll be much more adept

(Sydney, Australia - 2003)

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
