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 
 That's loud,

 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 
 And pain,

 What we have lost, beautiful things we have gained.
