When I look in the mirror

When I look in the mirror I see
The world that was going to be
Then a sadness comes all over me
What was to be, will not now be

I wish we could have been what we planned
But life never seems to hear or understand
And so in life we live in the unplanned
And we go forward and we learn to understand


This poem is written for the Sunday mini challenge at real toads; it was inspired by the photo provided by Kerry (taken by Susie Clevenger) and is written in the style of Yeats` poem cloths of heaven found at

No good looking back, is it? But here it isn't only what is behind us, it is what seems to be ahead. Ah, life can be so confusing. Nicely displayed in words.

Well said. We never are who we planned to be, but lots of times we're better for it.
