A Crack In The Mirror

Rating: 3.8
Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Where are you hiding me?
That face is not the one I recall.
It’s not the me I seem to be.

Forget that school reunion picture.
I’m not the fella standing there.
Who could all those others be?
Where is Joe and Fred, with their hair?
Could that be Bill and Paul?

Love the new idea of Mirror, Mirror on the wall. Your last day of public school gives you your first taste of life little changes. Well Done

Lighthearted, frank, and quite humorous. When we wish mirrors would lie, it's the truth that cracks it. 10+

Lucid and touchy poem. Last four lines are more beautiful. A nice job is done, bravo. 10 is added with pleasure.

Good poem about aging. On a lighter note I have my favorite middle age joke I heard once that said, 'You know you are in middle age when you don't mind it when the bathroom mirror fogs up.' Anyway, as the cliche goes you are as young as you feel. Anyway, your poem got me to thinking about these things. A ten for you. Sincerely, Connie Webb
