A reflection of me is what I see,
In the mirror right in front of me.
I dislike the grey hairs growing,
making me feel so old and dying.
I see the first sign of pimples,
making me wish it could just disappear.
Those freckles is getting bigger,
it somehow looks like the map of Australia.
But I could not get away from the mirror
For I only see the me I see.
I want to tell that person I see,
To step back and see all of me.
That I cannot change the greys and face,
For I can’t stop time and space.
I know, I know this for certain,
The change can happen from within.
Honest, open, transparent and kind
That’s what I want to be with myself and I.
If I cannot accept my own weaknesses
then how do I change towards greatness?
If I do not identify the strength I have
I cannot make the changes to survive
Making a paradigm shift in my life
towards a life I can harder strive.
Finally the question will be answered,
Who is that person I see in the mirror?
