Me and My Mirror

Me and My Mirror 

 Looked in mirror and then found my face 
 In a polite, particular and poignant place 
 Where there were wrinkles and two ears, 
 Eyes with brows and occasional tears. 

 Lips laughed and words they did speak 
 And my wandering eyes soon would seek 
 Things to see as I looked around; 
 Ears never heard eyes make a sound. 

 When mouth was hungry, God had fed; 
 Looked higher to see gray hair on head; 
 One more time in mirror tried to peak 
 To see movement in my each cheek. 

 What if both my eyes, I were to close 
 And had missed seeing any of my nose;  
 When I started to turned around; 
 Lonely face no longer could be found. 

 James Thomas Horn

    Excellent poem. Isn't the mirror a fool's tool as we age?

    Do you remember Turtle Harmon? He is now on As we slip through each year of school, Learn what is like to be a fool with loose tool, Who every time when sides would take, Many hearts he had to break. Until one day he had heard someone say, Never do it my but God's own way. Jim Horn
