“M” is for Mirror, Mirror – Fat Lady In The Pool

M

Mirror, Mirror on the wall

Who’s the fattest of them all?

When I was young,

My eyes deceived.

Heavier than I was,

Is what I believed.

 Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Who’s the fattest of them all?

Now that I’m old,

My eyes, they lie

Telling me I’m not plump,

On them I rely.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Who’s the fattest of them all?

Aged or of youth,

My eyes, they fool.

Pictures speak the truth,

               And BMI is cruel.

Forget you mirror……….I’m getting in the pool!!!

  1. That’s the spirit. Mirrors have never spoken the truth. You must do what you enjoy. A beautiful poem that highlights the fact that we must love and respect our bodies, and not let society or fashion trends determine our self-image.
