Look in the mirror, look very hard.

Look for the person your mind may guard

Is it the person you truly want to be

Or is it the person only lovely to see. 

Cynthia Shaw, 1962

(I've only written one poem in my life, and this is it. 

I wrote it in second grade while I was attending Somerlid Grade School in Pueblo, Colorado.)
