The mirror tells much more than you know..
At age 5, you linger with a comb,
At 10, you test the colors of your mom
on tender lips red they shine and pout,
At 15, you do away the braids
At 20, you lay claim as a young maiden with a trousseau of its time,
a sashaying made-up beauty
At 25, you look the part of a new bride
At 30, you wake up to a rush
At 35, you ease those tired eyes
At 40, you start a simpler profile
At 45, you stare at those wrinkles new
At 50, you remember to shade those greys
At 55, you try to stay as vibrant
and thereafter you live an appreciative life...
The Reflection that stares at you
has a question each time it looks back at you..
At every opportune moment that a mirror
reflects your stature does it also reflect
the time gifted to you - did you perchance have it planned well
or did you let the ravages of time take its toll?
For Life endowed to one is only his to behold
and lived according to his statutes - shobana
