Mirrors Do Not Lie.


An early marriage
and three children within ten years
placed me in a status
when I had no time to stand and stare.

Imagine I studied for the
board examinations
four times.
Each time it was different boards
I managed to come out well
my own take was honours
one another with distinction
the other two with a first class.

My sons flew from the nest
Left to me,
I started to look at the mirror quite often.

The reflection is quaint.
I see an old hag with  grey hair around the temples.
I shout”it is not me!”
Mirrors do not lie.
