Do your eyes tell strangers
That you appreciate their kind gestures
When your lips are covered?
Do you see deeper into their souls
when we can only see eye to eye from far apart?
Or do you look away
As if everyone around you is carrying
The invisible foe we all fear?
We cover our differences with cloth
Leaving us all together as one
One race fighting the same battle
And although, I love that we come together
To save one another
I miss the individualities
That we cover
For a smile can say so much without a single word
