Face:


When faces smile
I see shadows
hiding in cracks
of darkness, deep
within their souls

Yet I know
I have seen
that face before
in my mirror
looking at me

Shadows of happiness they are.

Shadows of pain
Shadows hiding
afard to be seen
Shadows darker than
a moonless night
Shadows we only see
in the mirror of life
Shadows owned
by the wearer

The lines are deep,
Still I find my light
In the
Moonless night.

Have fun off on your vacation?
Thanks for the read.
That old mirror shows
to much of the truth

Someday I hope to smile more, when I get better teeth to smile with! Folks go nuts trying to get me to smile. I see those dark smiles also!
