Breathlessly starring into the mirror, shocked with disbelief, of the reflection looking back

Eyes so bright, now dull and lifeless, as if death itself, was looking back

Time disappearing, vanished without realization, never again repeating youthful years

Features once admired, envied with jealousy amongst peers, avoided it has became

Age and time, eventually catching unaware, facts of life which are in denial

Life goes round in circles, living on with each generation, becoming part of history
