Decision Through Reflection

I look into the mirror
And see a face of age
Ravaged by the love of life
And pummled by the rage

The fire that was burning
Now is growing dim
The logs of life are fewer
Than the ashes of the sin

I see my fathers features
In the lines upon my face
Am I to join his journey
Or my mothers saving grace

The words of all outsiders
Have been blocked against my ears
I must face the choice of life
Through smiles and through tears

I have to reap the consequence
Of all the things I've done
And wonder if I've lost my way
Or wonder if I've won

Rockman  :-)

    Great write on the subject of growing older. It is a fact it happens to all of all sooner or later. Nicely put to words,
