Poem for today:

“spending times before mirrors”

I spend many hours before mirrors
trying to perfect this face
that I find so many flaws –
more than beauty points
I wish daily for thinner thighs
perhaps throw in six-pack abs
to mirror those images plastered
all over TV and magazines
but soon I and others will learn
that no matter how hard we try
to keep up our chiseled faces
in time it will all fade away
