I looked into the mirror
Just the other day.
My face was superseded
By another in the way.

“Please, go away. I want to see myself.”
As she blocked my very head.
“Look at me more closely,”
The lady in the mirror said.
“I am only you grown older
I am never in your way!”

“I’m your future self.
I watch you very closely.
Don’t go making mistakes, now.
Be careful what you say!”
