In the Mirror

I’m standing in front of the mirror

Staring at this face looking back at me

I don’t recognise this person who’s there

I’m not sure who it is she wants me to be.

 

Is it a mother, this beautiful face?

Doing the best she can for her children’s sake

Ignoring the judgement thrown her way

A loving environment for them she’ll make.

 

Is it a lover, this faithful face?

Standing by her man doing whatever it takes

To love and support him everyday

Ensuring their relationship never breaks.

 

Is it a daughter, this innocent face?

Living up to the morals that she was raised

Building a life full of love and eternal grace

Wanting her parents to be forever amazed.

 

I’m standing in front of this mirror

Staring at this incredible woman I see

This woman who is all these wonderful things

This woman who is everything a woman can be.

      Go for it! My poetry is my serious side, as you’ve probably noticed the rest of my writing is quite comical! Look forward to reading your poems… 😉
