The Face


And the face I wear
won't stay the same
it changes
from day to day
so untamed

Either a smile
or frown
maybe a smug smirk
or an indifferent
expression

Someone will notice
someone always notices
the angle
of today's face

They look at my lips
and wonder
'Why didn't he smile
like yesterday? '

They appreciate my face
as a form of entertainment


But I swear,
one of these days
I'm going to forget my face
at home
and on the day that I do
will be the day
I'll appreciate it most

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
