The Autobiography of a Face

Hider of secrets
Betraying myself only
to those that know my heart
My heart is the key to my face

Yet to the eye of the
beholder
My face is the only
way to see me
A mask
I wear one 95%
of my days
It’s what they want
It reflects what others
want to see
Happiness, beauty

My face, my face
Truly reflects
what’s within me:
Strength
Pain
Joy
Conflict
Determination
Ambition
Love
Passion
Beauty

My face is a gate
Furtive
Playful
Intelligent
Open the gate
and you’ll win
But until then
I’ll give them what
they want
What they’re comfortable with
I’ll don a mask
only taking it off
to let the most
Exclusive in
