Life In A Looking Glass

There in the mirror
a face to behold
yet not recognized
leaving a feeling so cold

He had no way of telling
here staring blankly
who this man was
this face totally empty

It was as if no life existed
in the reflection he saw
had he actually lived
or drawn the short straw

He should have been seeing
an inner spirit alive
but all that he found
was a failure to thrive

A life with no meaning
his days spent in vain
and now in this mirror
nothing but pain
