FACING UP

When you reach a certain age
need magnifying mirror gauge

the problems brought by passing time
the management of your decline

What this you see with glasses on?
Reflecting back from over yon?

A gastly show of lines and sag
fore-runner of the coming hag

This cannot be! Oh....where is me?......in all this taunting speck?
I’m still the same! (Inside I am) now witness to the wreck.
