Without Expression - Poem by David Whalen

Wouldn’t it be curious
If no one had facial expressions?

If we were all individuals
Yet looked exactly the same

Same width, same height,
Same exact complexions

Would some still be failures
While others find fame?

So much is dependent
On the way that we appear

What if that were taken
Out of the equation?

Would the people that we hold
So close and so dear

Seem to suddenly appear
Of a different persuasion?

When I look all about
At our shakers and movers

It’s obviously not their looks
that Makes them stand apart

It’s what they have inside them
Where we all look exactly alike

Perhaps a more understanding soul,
And a more demanding heart?
