The Faces We Never See

The face of weakness behind each degrading word.

The face of ignorance behind each act of cruelty.

The face of strength behind the tears.

The face of insecurity behind determination.

The face of failure behind each success.

The face of loss behind each smile.

The sparkling face of hope behind each shadow.

    The mask we wear lovely, but we can see those faces if we look into the eyes my dear. The expression marks the destination but the eyes represent the journey. Great post.🌹

    I love this because it shows that we have our struggles, despite what we show others. Those smiles harbor painful stories sometimes. Our successes come with a list of failures that preceded them. This poem is just a perfect reminder that we fall down sometimes, before we make that triumphant walk. Really beautiful thought, sissy! 💕

    P.S. You forgot to mention behind every halo is a pair of devil horns (cough, cough) *points at you* 😄
