Faces - Poem by Kevin Fix

To see beyond the looking glass
And know there's more than just a face
The present, future, and the past
Are written in with lines of grace
Whose silent stories we never know
The secrets that we're never told
Behind the mask a broken soul
With dreams that only came to be
Through sleep we've soared on borrowed wings

Till morning brings us home again
To walk the path of winding roads
A journey to a world unknown
Where time is never given free
It costs us what we've come to know
An aging face, and wisdom's grace
Comes to those whose hearts believe
Through love and pain
We dream the same
Just travel down a different road
