Projecting Oneself

Projecting Oneself

By Apolinario Villalobos


Difficult it may be, but should be done –

How we face the world and glow with smile

For times may occur when not even an eye

Is willing to open, flutter its lid just to say “hi!”.

Some  people read faces, even the pouting lips

Even know if one is kind by the stare of the eyes

Even by the shape of eyebrows, known are desires

But for skeptics, all of these are just ridiculous lies.

We are what our thoughts make us, we are all that –

Think happiness and  our face glows with gladness

Think sadness and our forlorn face droops woefully

Think kindness and our eyes radiates with affection

Think hatred  and we show  the hoary aura of revulsion!
