SORRY, MY MISTAKE

Yes

and I have ideas

of buying a mirror

 

so that I can

sit opposite

and see myself.

 

I could

keep it in my

pocket

 

and take quick looks

wherever

I was

 

and

know it was me

being myself

 

and not me

being

someone else.

 

At least then

your mistakes

are your own.

They say the camera never lies but I believe the mirror never lies and I am not always comfortable with what I see staring back at me.
Nice one

I came back to this again, Trevor, sometimes a quick reading is not enough. It has a quirky humour and a ready philosophy, and is like a reminder of who we really are, and not take that for granted, perhaps. Preferable to someone pointing out your errors.
