Mirror - Poem by Joseph Tanner

Looking into the mirror,
I’ve become so vain,
I like what’s looking back at me.
I take time on my appearance,
I care for what I look like.
I remember a time,
I’d hide from the mirror,
Scared to see that thing looking back at me.
I’d hide behind the camera,
Now I’m in every shot.
A time no one took notice of me,
Now I turn heads.
That hurts inside,
For I may have changed in appearance,
The person is still the same,
In time I will change again,
Hoping that I still can look in the mirror,
I hope in time knowing me is enough?
Deep down I’ve never change.
