By Which we are Known

By Which we are Known


The face expresses our identity

windows of who we are

The smile a signature unwritten

the eyes the mirror of the soul


The eyes betray sadness

and lighten with joy

They flicker in surprise

and stare in amazement


An itchy nose twitches

the eyebrows rise in wonder

The mouth agape is awestruck

a forehead with furrows of consternation


Eyes sparkle in desire and love

the face a beacon of our self

It captures the essence of our being

it radiates our inner life

By these we are known

Loved the title as well as the poem. Can't understand why this got so little attention!
