Face of Fear

He has an aura, a look of concern Written all over his face to discern There’s fear in his eyes, almost into tears He has a face of age, having more years The lips tremble with terror within them The skin, wrinkled, holds stories of wisdom But pain is in the heart of this hurt face Wherever he goes, while he’s anyplace There is a singing deep inside his head He does not cower, this he does not dread The music enlightens him bringing joy Having something for once to go enjoy No matter the scowl placed on his being He will still have a life of love, singing

    this one makes me wonder what you were looking at. It is as if you had a picture in front of you. Was this from such an inspiration?

    It was from a photograph of a man with a look of concern, I added the rest.
