Just Me by Sue Mullinger

Just Me

Is that another wrinkle or a crease from sleeping?
I stare hard at the mirror and at first feel like weeping!
Then I think, come on Sue, you know you’re no oil painting!
But I’ll not waste time and for cosmetic jobs be waiting.

I will tell people who ask, I had a bad paper round,
Better to be honest with others’ I have always found.
I am just me with deep set creases and long grey hair,
Yes I’ve a lived in face and really I do not care!
