My Reality

In Nineteen Forty Three, I peered into a
stone well and from the dark water, upon
my young eyes a  strange reflection fell.
An old gray haired man stared back at me.
I was a boy of ten, he was at least seventy-three.

Today, after all these years,
the reflection from that dark
well returned again, as I
peered into the mirror on
the wall, the realization of
that reflection from years
ago has suddenly become…
my reality.

Jackie R. Kays
