Looking In The Mirror - Poem by Sandra Kelley

Look in the mirror
I see, the past me


pretty
skinny
strong
unbreakable



Look in the mirror
I see, the girl slowly drifting away

tired eyes
bones
frail
breaking



Look in the mirror
I see, the girls almost gone

no more light in her eyes
unhealthy
tired
broken



Look in the mirror
I see, the girl gone

cold
heartless
exhausted
gone

    People do not have time to take a look in the mirror as you do. If they did, they could see their own transformations. Thanks for the philosophical note. (Report) Reply
