The Looking Glass

I peer into the looking glass
A model image of my past
It passes by so ever fast
We savor every moment
Wishing life were slowing
In no direction I'm just going

I peer into the looking glass
The man inside so ever sad
His life exceeds but any task
Sadness binds behind his mask

I peer into the looking glass
Now horror beams across his face
His failure I begin to taste
His heart inside is dark and gloomy
The man inside is yours truly
