Note to self

entry picture

I look in the mirror;

Don't like what I see;

Is that saturnine woman

Actually me?


Where is the girl

With a smile that shone?

All grown up;

The smile's long gone.


Embittered and cynical;

Forlorn and morose;

Sees only the thorns

-Not the beautiful rose.


Note to self:

Need attitude shift!

Life's not a burden;

Life is a gift.

I looked in the mirror it suddenly did crack,
No hope for the future couldn't look back.
But went out immediately and bought a new glass,
Looked forward to the future let what happened pass.

That is a beautiful reminder to us all to be just a little more thankful for our blessings.
