The picture


The wonderful mirror
To see my error
In the most dieing world
Where I’m dumb to say a word
The miraculous mirror

Yesterday my life was shuttered
To tough to see my shadow
Deranged, clueless and out
Then my hollow only uttered wow
The perfect mirror

My rip-roarious strength fall flat
The energy pumped within disappeared
Life crushed my tiny fillet life
My soul left still wanting more vile
The wonderful mirror

Mirror! Mirror! I exclaimed
When what I saw seemed not like me
The perfect picture I printed
Just two years while I was me
The picture in the mirror a mistake

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
