What do you see in the mirror?

Mirror . . .

.

Years are not always kind.

One never knows what wrinkle

in mirror will find,

but I have found

my nature

finally,

that I distance

in fear

that I am private

for protection,

and this knowledge

upon reflection

might be used to stand

straight, tall

glad to be standing at all.

So many chances

cast to the wind

it seems,

yet

isn’t it worth it to take a chance

on dreams?

      Well writing is a necessity; I don’t function half as well if I don’t write often. For me it is a way to vent. But thank you and you are welcome, of course. : )
