Love your opinions and your writing. The mirror is, indeed, a reflection of ourselves and the life we lead. Your poem is well written and thought provoking. Evi

I really enjoyed reading your poem, Marilyn. I found your third stanza especially provocative. I like the idea of moving on to "new days of glory." I never like to look back.
My best to you in the contest with what I think is a very fine entry.
Connie

This poem, About mirrors, really sums up all we can expect to have reflected back at us. Life's battles and victories are present on our exteriors or caught in the countenance of our eyes as they reveal what life has done to and for us. Nice poem.

Hi Marilyn,

I really enjoyed this one. The thing about mirrors is that they never lie and can truly show us things that can't be seen otherwise. In every line upon our faces or shadow beneath our eyes. Nice job on the rhyme and style of this piece.

Thanks for sharing.

Kim

Hi Marilyn. Interesting poem about mirrors. Most of the time we do not like what we see, now we are getting older. But alas, who cares... The past is the past, remember the nice things in your mind, We have to concentrate on the future and celebrate life, with wrinkles and grey hair. Nice poem, loved it. Fia

This is a very well written poem you have penned for the writing prompt. You used very good wording that was so very true. The image you used went well with this. Best wishes in this! Blessings, Teri

This is a nice, reflective poem. My favorite line: 'we're a sum of all that has molded us'. I think that is so true. Some of those things are good and others are not so good. We learn and move on.
Nice commentary in poetic form.

    Hi Heidi. The key words in your review are "we learn and we move on." Yes, that's how we grow. Thank you for reading and reviewing my poem. Marilyn

Marilyn, I like the part about would we want to relive those years or move forward to new days of glory. I think we hopefully learn from mistakes and move on

    Hi Judy. That's exactly my feeling, Judy. All that we did before put us on today's path. Most people would not want to go back or change anything. Marilyn

A well-written poem. It is true what your poem states. The mirror doesn't lie to us and we can't deny what we see in the mirror. Good luck in the contest.

Wonderful poem! I like how you start with a physical thing as a mirror but so much more perception is covered beyond the physical manifestation on our faces, but all the heart-weighing events of life as we look in the mirror of our lives as we see ourselves and as others see us.

    Sometimes shocking, too, isn't it lyenochka. It's a good thing we age gradually and not overnight. LOL! Thank you for your fine review. Marilyn
