A Stranger In The Mirror - Poem by Tia Maria

Who are you & where did I go
Where is the girl I used to know
Who is this woman staring back at me
Who are you, where could I be

What happened to that girl
with the big brown eyes
Now all that I can see
Is sadness & lines

I am done with all this
No more pain & sorrow
Just walk away, say goodbye
Please don't come back tomorrow

    unacceptibility of the poet of the Present is quite evident in this poem..... the best thing i liked is the poet's desire to be young ever......thanks, dear.... (Report)Reply

    excepcional writing... a lifetime is too short to spend in vain, so when you live to write such beautiful pieces you do have nothing to regret, i sure. (Report)Reply

    Tia, please believe that there are men out there that love mature women. Lines on ones face are maps of experience.
    Be proud of the life you have lived, and make the best of what remains.
    I love you anyway.

    God, inventing mirrors, said,
    they won't like what they see...
    they'll only find the truth within -
    their truth so dear to Me..

    Tia, I see you have the same kind of mirrors in S.Africa as we have in the UK. I am sure however, that you have people who love every single line; caused by the experience of life. Love the poem.10/10
