Faces
Faces
So many faces there's no room to move.
Don't make eye contact, it's a contest you'll lose.
So many faces it's hard to find space.
Change your position, you might lose your place.
So many faces breathing all of the air.
Suffocating each other without seeming to care.
So many faces all looking around.
Summing up their surroundings and guarding their ground.
So many faces rushing by in a hurry.
Is arriving there faster worth all of their worry?
So many faces that look into mine.
Are they searching my soul, are they hoping to find;
one face out of millions that might understand,
and offer some comfort or just hold their hand.

I like this for it's message. Every face tells a story and it is good to know a face that understands.

I wasn't there. I didn't do it. It's not mine.
