Just a slab

You might look at me
with your blushed pink face
Your hard pimpled complexion
But above it all I know
that your sharp edged
square attitude is all a bluff
For/Four cornered
we can all see that you really are
two faced so double the math still
just a slab
standing the test of time
waiting to be cracked through age
when your crevices may be filled
smoothed over 
to tidy your appearance 
and make seem renewed
a little younger cosmetically
by the touch of skilled hands
steady in their chosen profession
Yet at the end of the day
everyone knows
you are just going to get walked over

    Very descriptive write that fits many..Sad but we all have some of those cracks that have been smoothed over but not really fixed..Enjoyed reading of your work..I was gladdened at the comments that you left on my write about the spider compared to the abusive person..You go ahead and do your write on the same topic for yours will be unique totally different from my thoughts penned..Sara

    Oh, this is brilliant, Anna-Marie!! People who try to hide their age and behave in deceptive manners will eventually be exposed and "get walked over." Outstanding poem! Love, Carolyn
