i looked in the mirror one day
for the first time in a while
and observed changes i couldn't earlier say

green eyes flecked with gold
i saw on this stranger
a long, sharp nose, but that i've been told

olive skin that was sometimes tan
look down, what big feet!
such appendages are fit for a man!

further though, i peered
thick, full lips
with a small cupid's bow, it appeared

a widow's peak
below bushy auburn and red hair
such thick hair which proudly i would speak

sharp cheekbones on an oval face
next to my right eye a shark tooth shaped scar
with i would wear without disgrace

to think thought and thunk
what a silly girl this is
only 17 but too full of childish impatience and spunk

who looked longingly at the sky
but thought she belonged in the sea
and believed she would never die

bored eyes suddenly awoke
unconciously long legs shifted
as the small mouth spoke

"who ever thought one could ever be so loud
with such a strange and constant mumble
and still live brightly and be proud?

"in outside and in
who is so vain to think
they could ever not play and still win?

"but really who am i?"
and we shudder to think
"who aren't you?"

two wrongs don't make a right, but four lefts can make a square.
