If You Could Just See Your Face Right Now

Bracing for the onslaught of life?

Eyes narrowing and bags darkening the eyes?

Jaw tightening with resolve?

Brow furrowing with fear?

Frowning at the prospect of getting by?

 

Your face telling me of your disappointments

Through your tight mouth

Your pain and loss traveling through the tributaries

On your cheeks and chin

 

When will you begin

To smile at the future?

Start now.

Look younger.
