Mirror

A Poem by Nima.Hope
"

When mirror shows the truth, don't break it, break yourself.

"


Looking at the mirror
I see a young boy
He is only 18
but looking to me old
His unshaved face and gray hair
shows the pain of passion
lived a century in less than two decades
like a fast journey through decades
he is a box of books
hard to mention
He has been sick 
cause of tension
But I see hope in his eyes
waiting for 
a force  to rise
Listening to the Requiem
over and over again
Caressing the piano
that was fulfilled with dust
to remember the love that was lost
the mirror smiles at me
Like a wise looking at a mad
there's nothing more
for him to be sad

They say a mirror doesn't lie and I'm inclined to agree. When I look in mine I see a life well-travelled. I see the footprints of time, those fine lines etched round the eyes and the corners of my mouth. I see the emotions of a life time that tell me I have lived, loved and lost. Really enjoyed this write dear Nima. We can't hide from the mirror, it is so revealing.
