“Let it Bleed” challenge

Saumya Agrawal over at Randomness Inked has a weekly writing challenge that she is hosting.  She posts a word, phrase, question or picture on Sundays and says “write!”

So here I go….WRITING! The word this week is: Mirror 

She looked into the mirror and wondered

where did her life go?

The last time she looked she was young.

How many years had she been so busy

She never noticed the graying hair

the fine wrinkles appearing?

She had never really just examined her face this intensely before

and was shocked by what she saw.

She looked into the mirror and hoped she was wrong.

For she saw her mother’s face.

    1. wow, really? I always think when I attempt any poetry that I have completely failed. Thanks for that…so very much.

      1. Not at all a failure – doing English Literature at uni means I’m somewhat of a poetry geek at times – I’m not so fond of the romantics – I much prefer modern poetry! I just think it’s so much grittier and lifelike!

      2. I’m glad to hear it!! And whenever you’re having a bad day, I want you to remember that, even though I’ll probably never meet you, I think you’re great and talented and you should never stop doing what you’re doing because if that poem was you when you weren’t really trying, you will be a poetic force to be reckoned with when you are!

  2. This is lovely ❤ How ignorant we are towards our mothers who keep themselves busy looking after the house, taking care of the family and its needs and wishes!
