Reflection 20 mirrored Summer’s Sunset Soliloquy, which mixed balancing mental health and sunbathing in the top half of the poem; with balancing positive and negative attitudes and behaviour towards people in the bottom half.
Here’s Reflection 20 of 121 in 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections:
Strength and Death
In youth I felt strong enough to die.
In middle-age I feel my strength dying.
In old age I expect to feel death strengthen.
Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror is from his own mind, experience and memories. He thinks it’s an anti-suicide poem if anything, but also thinks that you can read what you want into it, and do whatever you want.
Your mind is your own
his is mine

not having anything
to live for is a
good place to clearly see,
and start creating
what you want
Completing Cycle, Living Life
to somewhere better
sweet talking serenader, becomes nagging poker
trying to suck
