Angry Mirror

The mirror, it stares back at me

I don’t like what it shows

The battered shell of yesterday

My angry feeling grows

I can’t believe the time I’ve lost

I’ve wasted all my lives

On doubts, and dreams, and useless things

And lying, cheating wives

The gray has crept into my beard

My eyes reveal the time

Sure, I’ve seen and done it all

On someone else’s dime

But if I’d started sooner

If I’d only just believed

I wouldn’t have to try so hard

And live my life relieved

Instead I face the mirror

And he taunts me with each glance

He’s handing me my ticket

To my being’s final dance
