Child in the Mirror

Cat looking in a mirror, seeing a lion.

Married for years

Paying the bills

On the inside I feel like a child

 

Six-foot two

Beard not new

In the mirror I look like a child

 

Working all day

Working to play

On the inside I feel like a child

 

Reading the news

Seeing what’s new

In the mirror I look like a child

 

Conversing with friends

Problems on end

On the inside I feel like a child

 

Wake up each day

Do the same thing

Look at the world like a child

  1. Love the poem!! If we would keep looking at the world, ourselves, and others, through the eyes of a child with love in our hearts how different things would be.
