Learning to love unconditionally is an ongoing process.

I know Nothing—

Which says Something.


“Take That Look off your face!”

            Defiant inside

“What Look?”

            Stubborn and still defiant

“That LOOK that  says

You’ve forgotten who is in charge!”

            I will not answer, but she’s wrong…

I do know who is in charge,

and I don’t like it!


Years later~

The LOOK has been

Carefully crafted

To hide truth.

It is a pleasant, bland face

--That actually hides nothing

Because it’s still

That LOOK. 


Learning to LOVE has changed

My version of

That Look

--Into a Smile—

A soul/consciousness

Who has learned to

SEE first.

--Look later.

You are special because you were created special.

No one can take that away from you.

The love that you give unconditionally will bing you happiness no words can ever express...

"That Look" makes me see better through its lesson on its verses.

An enjoyable reading of "That Look" I had.

Thank You, Poet!
