A Female’s Journey Looking In The Mirror

TWO YEARS OLD – I got a fright,
FOUR YEARS OLD – I thought, ‘What a beautiful sight!’
TEN YEARS OLD – I look different to them,
FIFTEEN YEARS OLD – I wish I were size 10,
TWENTY-FIVE YEARS OLD – There’s so much I need to change,
THIRTY-FIVE YEARS OLD – I’m beginning to like myself, isn’t that strange!
FIFTY YEARS OLD – I’ve been through it all, I’m doing well,
SIXTY YEARS OLD – I’m beautiful inside and out, I’m sixty, but you couldn’t tell!
