Layers of Faces - Feb. 22, 2011


Layers of Faces

Under layers of faces there exist journeys held in silence
Constantly unraveling inside as heart strings
Pulled to the surface they can quickly shift these layers
Into smiles, tears or a burning anger not predicted
Instantly changing everything

Memories held within the layers of faces never disappear
What the heart has gazed upon remains
Deeply engraved in the tender fibers of our souls
As burning embers buried under time's ash
Sparked......becomes a flame

What is banished often still exists under these layers
Inside the spirit of all our heart strings
Our journeys may leave vivid scars held in silence
But they will also leave lessons in layers
Used to change everything
