Face poem

When I look in the mirror
I see his face
He has distinct features
Some it seems
like creatures

He has spots or dots across his face
like a jaguar
His skin tone and race is white
like a polar bear
He has the cheeks of a monkey

Other characteristics
are not so animalistic
Like soft skin
with some blemishes
and upper lip hair the sign of a growing boy
Or his red nose that looks great with his slight tan
the bags under his eyes
indicate signs of stress
And you can tell his life
puts him to the test
