Lying Mirrors

I hate these lying mirrors, saying I am older than I feel.
And, why can’t I find a bathroom scale that can give me an answer that is real?

I avoid all Kodak moments; the images steal my soul.
And, why is growing hair on top of my head such an improbable goal?

Why do I keep getting letters from the A.A.R.P?
And why are things I witnessed myself now being taught in high school history?

They say it beats the alternative; this process of growing older –
But I want God to keep me young and that is exactly what I told her!

    This is a really nice poem. Being old has it's moments doesn't it? I just turned 50 about 3 weeks ago (though I don't look it I'm told all the time). But you really expressed yourself beautifully with this poem. Great job!! Karla~
