I See Faces

i see faces

so many faces

some have traces

of stages

they've been through.

I stop to watch them

so many faces

i look for traces

of the lives

they live.

some are smiling

some are hiding

they have secrets

it shows

on their faces.

when i look in their eyes

i see through their disguise

some are living on lies

others, just fantasise

going about their lives



i see faces

happy faces

angry faces

it all amazes

This was a song I wrote back in 1990. I now publish it in 2020, a new area where face masks are becoming the norm. I can still see the smiles, the secrets and lies. I'm sure you can too.
