Two Paths Meet

Face Analysis

Representations on a face are perceived
Gestures and signals, falsely believed.
Study a face when it knows no one is there
Truth and honesty will be more likely to share.

A smile can be seen, but yet sadness is inside.
A face can show presence, but yet distance does abide.
A wink that shows acceptance, but yet rejects,
Words that flow, but yet are filled with circumspect.

A hand that twists the strands of hair,
Lips that move, yet words aren’t there,
Eyebrows that shift closer with strain
A gritting of teeth, displaying pain.

Study a face in a moment captured aside,
from all that surrounds and tries to hide,
Truth and honesty are sure to be there
In a face that doesn’t know that you really care.
