This Face (poem)
Have we ever looked in someone’s face
To trace the start of every single line
To place the footsteps makeup won’t erase
This space that bears both history and time.
Sweet valleys mark the passing of the tears
While tiers of joy have crafted that warm smile
And here’s the gentle path of hopes and fears
To years this held enhanced in grace and style
Now to dive to swim in lustrous pools
What fools have drowned or lost their way therein
Those schools of life whose fire never cools
These tools that map out truth that lies within
I gaze into this mask of dreams for days
Amazed the ways we blazed life’s daily plays
