Generation Of Mirrors - Poem by Faith Wood

My generation lives in mirrors
We base our morals upon good features and fabulous hair
Bending over backwards for paper think bodies
and rock hard abs-
We'd do just about anything.
We breathe in smoke like it's the latest fashion,
drinking tequilla like it's water
We party as if these are the best years
We scream in triumph as if we've won
at the game of life
Boy do we have so much to learn

    What does the mirror say today.... time for another nip and tuck.... got to go to the gym keep that body trim.... what ever happened to just enjoying what you have... we sure do have a huge lesson to learn....
