An Unwelcome Realization

Here's a depressing little poem in honor of my birthday yesterday:

 An Unwelcome Realization

 Standing before the shimmering mirror
The cracks in my face become clear
And I feel my age, in a moment of terror
And I know that my last breath is near

Still I cling to the notion that it’s all just a phase
And that tomorrow I’ll wake up renewed
And nothing will remain of this horrid malaise
And I’ll have recovered my young attitude
