As I look into the mirror
an image flashes back at me
only it’s not what it’s supposed to be.
It’s no longer I that I see
someone else is staring back at me
a stranger; I don’t know who it could be.
That’s not my face, not my hair
it’s not anything close to being like I am
yet this image is all that I can see in my reflection.
Is this what I have become
or is my mind playing tricks on me
because this isn’t what I used to see.
Could I have really changed that much
in so little of a shortened time?
Is that even possible?
If this is really who I am now
explain what I did to get here
was it for the best the worst?
Do you like what you see in me?
Is it better than what I used to be?
Am I going to change again to see all that I can?
Will my reflection continue to change?
Can I not go back in time to do it all over again?
Can’t I choose where I want to be instead of where I am?
