Weekend Writing Prompt — The Man in the Mirror

I woke up early this morning, even for me.
I get up to go to the bathroom
Because I have to pee.
I look in the mirror and
I’m shocked by what I see.
The closer I look, the more I wonder
How this can be?
I see a reflection in the mirror,
But surely it’s not me.
There is a wrinkled, weathered face that I see.
There is a very old man
Who is staring right back at me.
And I have to wonder whether
It is him or me who is the reality.

    Most days the image doesn’t match how I feel – both too young and too old.
