If I Were A…

 
 
 

 
 

Poem written by me.

 
 
 
If I were a mirror, I wouldn’t be round or square.
 
I wouldn’t have fancy, oriental designs or gold trimming.
 
I would be jagged, like the the rays of the sun.
 
I would have scuffs, scratches and dents like a chrome bumper.
 
I would be fogged, warped and faded like the mirrors of a fun-house.
 
I would be aged, but with a beauty that only those with a true gift could see.
 
I would be unique, standing out amongst all other mirrors.
 
I would have seen time pass, reflecting shadows across my glass.
 
I would have been loved, forgotten, given away, sold and even tossed.
 
When people look, I wouldn’t seem very special.
 
But it would be their loss to walk away without peering in once.
