Cogitare - Poem by Arik Fletcher

We gaze into the mirror,
To see where time has gone,
The past laid bare before us,
That shaped the path we're on.

We frown back at the mirror,
To show each crease and line,
The passing of the ages,
An ever present sign.

We stare into the mirror,
To find what brought us here,
The choices that have shaped us,
And changed us year by year.

We glare back at the mirror,
To prove we have no fear,
Our worries far behind us,
Through all we hold most dear.

We look into the mirror,
To seek a higher cause,
The sum of life before us,
No time to doubt or pause.

We smile back at the mirror,
To count each line and scar,
The life and love shared with us,
That made us who we are.
