What Face, You?

What Face, You?

Is it the face you wear
when you greet a day
of sky-scrapers and space-rockets?
Or the one gazing at a whale
flexing it’s mighty tale
while a porpoise plays nearby?

What Face, You?
Could it be the face you don
Watching the ones you love
The ones who can trust your heart?
Or is it the face that turns
only to gaze
at chilly meadows and gray streams?

What Face, You?
Is it the face
That follows the eagles flight
in peace, comfort, and freedom?
Or is it the one
burning with a tempestuous desire
to stare into a raging fire
of injustice, rage and fear?

What Face, You?
Is it the one that turns
to bend and drop a tear
When backs are turned
and no one is looking?’
Or is is the one that stands
to stare down
the alleyways of peril
The fiercest enemy
The one most recognizable.

About DiAnne Ebejer

I am retired and live on the East coast of Florida where I spend much of my time reading, playing with photography and trying to write some "poetry and then some" at dianneebejer.wordpress.com. I care deeply about many things and wish there was much more love and compassion in this world today. I also have a part time blog "Thought You Might Like This" diannesthingsat.wordpress.com used for special projects and occasional things of interest

    Great poem, DiAnne. We wear most of those faces…so many, to express different thoughts, urges and musings. Love your poetry.
