The Stranger in My Mirror

Today morning whenI looked into my bed room mirror
I saw someone I've never seen before.
she looks like me, but she is not the girl standing in front.
I'm amazed to see her scheming eyes,
The intensely attractive lips are no doubt, desirable,
But they are not mine.
Her eyes spoke of plans to capture attention, to meet headlines and,
Put up a stiff defence in the face of verbal attacks.
I was scared to see the aggressive and exhausted expression on her face.
'No, this is not me!' I gave out an ecstactic scream.

Just then the girl in the mirror put forward her hand towards me
And touched my cheeks,
I was surprised to see that my petal like cheeks have transformed
Into stiff and scorched skin,
My eyes have lost their soft innocence and become like hers,
I was about to give an ecstatic scream, when she said,
'Grow up girl. you have another self to live.'
I discovered that I've lost my childish innocence forever and have become
A mechanized work force with a certain production capacity and a success quotient.
I was about to break into tears, when
I realized my tears have dried up as well('cause they are unproductive parts of me)
