That Damn Mirror

Regina Puckett


Who is that woman in the mirror

Surely there is some kind of error

That person has wrinkles and gray hairs

But no matter how long I look – she stares

What does that other person want from me

And I wonder if she sees who it was I used to be

Because inside I’m carefree, hopeful and youthful

Why does that damn mirror have to be so truthful?
