At this moment

I look at the mirror
And flip through old photographs
I look at my eyes
And receding hairline
The drooping pecs
The grey hairs on chin
And chest

At this moment
I am as ugly
As I’ve ever been
I thought the same
A year ago
And ten before that
And at the same time
Right now I look the best
Than I ever will again

And in ten years
I’ll stare at the man again
With bald spots
Wrinkles and grey hair
And look at the picture of me
From today

And I will think how good looking I was today
And better looking, 
Than I’ll ever look again.
