My Face

by joetwo

This is my face

There are many like it

But this one is mine

I have worn it all my life

I have lived with it

I intend to die with it

With it I have greeted the world

I have bade farewell to dying family

Welcomed new lovers to a fresh day

Absorbed the blows of my enemies

And shown the sweet look of the victor

My face has been burnt by the sun

Beaten by the wind and rain

Made ashen by disease

Turned red by many nights revelry

 This face is mine and has been made by me

By my actions, all I have done

This is my face

And if you think it is ugly

You have another think coming!
