Gestures.Outbursts of aggressionTimid displays of affection.Eyes pooled with feelingwhirring in the pit of a black hole.A tight ring of color squeezesout an ocean spray of sadness.Eyebrow arrows point down the slopeof a perfectly sculpted nose.Wiggling around to catch the smellof freshly baked bread.A dash of eyelashes frame a harsh stare.A stare that was complete with emotions.Glancing across the terrainof cheekbone mountains.Within this mountain rangelay the etched-in smile linesthat trace an oval around lipscapable of screaming profanity.Lips that can whisper precious memories.Give advice. Catch a kiss.Present information.A face is easily readand so quickly misunderstoodthat the features eventually run into each otherto create misconception.Try to understand my emotions.My face.

  21. 21. 20Going UnnoticedA gray chair kept me from sinking to the groundAs I watched a grown man crySpeaking of an inspirationThat had remained in him through many yearsAwestruck at the passion that sat between the lines of his notesHe read the image to the audienceComplete silence as he reenacted what he had witnessedA story of heroism, of strength, of powerIn this story, he describes a girlA girl with unbelievable strengthShe wanted to stand for her countryWanted to prove her strength and enduranceShe stood from a wheelchairSaluted with shaking handsHeld up by another soldierHe said that no one had noticedAnd as this man spokeI realized the influenceI realized how much he looked up to herIn that momentThat women who stood from a wheelchairBecame a role model for everyoneWho watched the grown man cry
