Peddling along; talking kind.
Meet a girl; sure college age.
She smiles at wife; we turn the page.
She looks at him with scowling face.
Then looks away and shows disgrace.
She greets the wife in proper form.
No words for him which seemed her norm.
Both would meet her on their way.
Both would greet a pleasant day.
Why the different face to see?
Why greet the wife so pleasantly?
A life of pain; a life of fear.
Deep down inside we think a tear.
Maybe a man didn’t treat her well.
Maybe a father cast his spell.
We read these faces as we go.
Each a story that they will show.
We pray that God will give us sight.
As we interpret each ones plight.
It seems we all portray a view.
A written screen on face pursue.
A story told with shadowed fact.
A glimpsing view; all that’s intact.
When others eyes look on your face.
A deep felt hurt or warm embrace?
A hidden life so deep within.
An outward smile but hardened sin.
Please understand when someone meet.
You don’t know victory or defeat.
Just show them love that Christ can give.
And pray through Jesus they can live.
