Mirror

I look in the mirror,
And all that I see,
Is the face of a woman,
Begging to be free.

I loon in the mirror,
Seeing a woman forced to chose;
Yet no matter what she decides,
She knows that she's bound to lose!

I look in the mirror,
And the face that stares back,
Is one on the edge of sanity,
That any minute could crack!

I look in the mirror,
And see a woman lost in a sea of pain;
Terrified of the past,
And seeing the future with nothing to gain.

I look in the mirror,
But the face staring at me is blank.
After all of the laughter and tears,
You'd think that my life what just a prank!

Thank you again Marisol. I have, as mentioned in the poem, been faced with a decision, where no matter what I decide-I will lose. This poem reflects what I feel when I think of that decision. I'm so glad that you enjoyed it!!!

Your have a brilliant writing pattern but i feel most of your poems have a negative feel for them. Mainly not my style of poetry but that still doesn't change the fact your a good writer. =)
