Your Face!


(Photo credit: Leroys)

What’s in a face you may wonder.

 The face captures the essence of the soul.

Your face is like the gate-keeper of your destiny.

It defines who you really are.

Your eyes draw people to you like magnet.

Your nose sniffs out success.

Your lips tastes life.

Your teeth sustain you!

Your cheeks impact on your glory.

 It puffs up when you’re full and shrinks at your lowest ebb.

Your face is permanently yours.

You can’t divorce your face.

You’re stuck with it!

You might BOTOX it.

Plum it up.

Try to redefine it.

 But you can’t go on holiday without it!

You can bleach it white.

 Or darken it with suntan creams.

But it’s forever yours!

Your face is beautiful.

 Your face is a mystery!

It’s the mirror to your soul.

Take care of your face guys… it would be with you for eternity!

I saw a man today on my way to work, my eyes locked with his for a brief second and we connected briefly. The man’s face stayed with me throughout today. He was an old man, probably tending towards eighty but he looked happy. I couldn’t help thinking of the kind of life he’d lived to that moment when we passed by each other like breeze on a country side. The writer in me sprung to life and when I got home, I penned this words. I hope you like it!

Much love to you my friends!

    There’s a lot to explore in a face, it tells many stories, and like you mention, so many exchanges, even slight glances in the peripheral of our minds, Loved the poem..!

    A great picture for this post. I bet the man you saw was just as handsome. Sounds like he had a special vibe too.

    I do like it. So many people are not happy with themselves so they try to change it (botox, colors-like you mentioned). It is so liberating to like yourself- weaknesses and all. Thank you for this great reminder. 🙂

    Welcome to the 100 club! I love those thoughts, those whimsically imponderable thoughts about random people you see during your day, they are so divinely delicious and are always savoured.
