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

    1. Alas, yes it does. Thanks for reading.
