It gets worse every day...

I turned my head
And who did I see
A woman who looked
Just like me
The problem was not
That I have a
Twin out there
The problem was that
It was me in that stare
I saw myself in a mirror
It wasn't another person
It was just me
I wondered at that moment
How dumb can we be

Sometimes when I look in the mirror I am surprised because that is not the way I see myself at all as I go through each day. Go figure. Thank you, Lynn. Love and best wishes,

As we age and looke into our mirrors, we see our Mother's in ourselves. We don't like it , but it is as it is. I can also see my sister in law is looking more like her mother all the time and my cousin is looking more like her mother all the time. But you still see yourself in the mirror, so you must be quite young and free.
