Faces - Poem by Esther Mukabi
Your angry face when you’re shouting loudly,
Your tired face when you’re closed and drained.
Your stubborn face when you’re pouting proudly,
Your hurt face when you’re looking pained.
Your busy face with shallow eyes,
Your selfish face, always looking in.
Your ugly face as you tell lies,
Your sad face when you don’t win.
Your tearstained face as you finally look down,
At your children’s faces, trust betrayed.
There are faithless faces in this dirty town,
Corrupt. Bribed. Paid.
There are innocent faces wondering
Why, in a world so ‘rich’ and ‘free’
Is there food for you
But none for me?
