A FACE WITH A DIFFERENCE


I see somewhere around me
A face with a difference.
I see a face that`s not set on my face.
Its lips don`t kiss mine.
Its breath doesn`t feel mine
But I continue to see that face with a difference.
In the midst of faces that smile and sack
This is a different face indeed.

When I draw a picture of a face
I shall consider this one indeed.
This face has a thousand reflections
And in the twilight of my evening
I shall cherish this one face ever and ever.
In the corridors of my future unwoven
I shall chase this face henceforth.

My eyes see the difference
And that face begins to merge with mine.
My face turns upward to see
The things brighter and shapely.

I have now a face.

    To have a face in a faceless multitude is the higest form of identity and to continue to keep up that face is the greatest ordeal! A wonderful poem, Dinesh! ! (Report) Reply

    Blessings of an unseen face merging into a face are the focal point of this poem. Looking from inward to outwards is pure poetic wisdom. Reading Dinesh's poetry is a pleasant surprise to me.
    Best Wishes.

    Sensiblity is the nerve point of Mr. Dinesh's poetry. One can identify oneself in his poems. His words mirror the inner conflicts and truthful musings of a common man. (Report) Reply
