In the Mirror

Reflection making me shudder,
I thought the world would wait,
everything would freeze,
and I could say yes to anything
while there have been signs
I shouldn't have ignored but did,
which if I had learnt and acted early,
I would have been younger,
and there would have been fewer wrinkles
had I been more attuned to the warnings.
