Faces by Sarah

Someone once asked 

Why I dress so shabby?

Well, the answer lies

In the depths of my soul’s dark abbey!

And while you choose what to wear

To join in life’s race

I stand before my closet

Thinking – Today which face?

So engulfed by darkness is my being

That even I no longer recognise me

And each new day is an unveiling!

I lack no branded clothes

Or makeup or accessories

What I lack is the will to dress up

And deal with even the basic necessities!

While you mix and match

Your perfect outfit and face creams

I’m relentlessly trying to choose

A ‘face’ that hides the screams!

Run away from me, shun me

Like I’m a disease

For all I want is solitude 

To find the face that once was ME!
