THE FACES WE WEAR
Take a look once in a while, slow down, stare
Into their faces,
Do you wonder If they see your look on a certain day,
Are you okay?
I'm not talking about the way you frown or the smile
I'm talking about the reality when you turn back around.
I've seen what walks in front of me, I've seen you but
I've seen me,
We wear faces of today, we wear also our faces of shame.
The faces we wear are a collection of a lifetime of love
What we have lost, beautiful things we have gained.
Indeed, our faces broadcast a look inside about ourselves.
Thanks for your thoughts.

It’s so good Keith. The stories of our lives are on the lines of our face. Very engaging piece. 🙂
So true! I read this and immediately thought of “We Wear the Mask” by Paul Lawrence Dunbar.
Thanks for your thoughts and for reading.
