Faces

Ocean Cherub-Michael Cromwell

Faces


Almost like a chameleon,
Changing with each atmosphere

A collage of faces,
Adapt and adhere

To particular circumstances,
Desiring different results

Seeking your goal,
Pretending not to insult

Falsely displaying,
Who you are not

Attempting to catch,
People in their blind spot

Instead of pretending,
Just be you

Your lies,
Are being seen through

You are not only deceiving others,
But yourself as well

Losing yourself,
Falling under your own spell

Very well stated, JStar! Chameleons are pretty cool, as animals go. But people should remain people... real, consistent, if not entirely predictable.

Great poem!

One.

Fave line: "Almost like a chameleon,
Changing with each atmosphere" Been here...done this. It becomes all too easy, and sometimes necessary, in some situations.
