Miles to go before I grow?

Miles to go before I grow?


"28 in 10 days, but do I feel old?"
"Bah", shoots back the mirror, "you are youthful and bold"!

"Married I am now, and a flat I finally own,"
"Woopie", rejoices the mirror, "how brightly you have shone!"

"Wrinkles are creeping and some of the hair may have gone,"
Annoyed, sneers the mirror, "you cynic don't groan! "

"30 in 2 years, is what I am always told :-("
Exasperated, yells the mirror, "its just's a number, don't relinquish control :-|"

"Gosh, so much still to do, where did all those years go?"
Calmly, unravels the mirror, "in gathering those memories which we now so deeply hold."

"Al rite am grateful. I don't feel all that bitter and cold,"
Smiles, accepts the mirror, "me, your soul dear, will always be around."   

PS: I am trying to post a day until its my Birthday. I hope live up to this claim! Until then please bear with my trials.
PS2: I have not forgotten about the London series.

  3. Beautifully penned. Full of positive energy and chirpiness in the words. A very soulful and happy poem!

    "Gosh, so much still to do, where did all those years go?"
    Calmly, unravels the mirror, "in gathering those memories which we now so deeply hold." - simply brilliant lines. :)

  14. I so loved this poem :-). Most of the times our alter ego is the only person who can understand us and make us see sense. Age is just a number , has been rightly emphasized. Btw, happy birthday Jenny :-)
