How many faces do you have?
Two, Three, Four…
Can they even be counted?
How do you know?

Sometimes I wonder.
What would happen if
We all just
Lost control?

Would that be crime?
Is it just chaos?
Or maybe it is even

Did we ever really have control?
What does that even mean?
Where do these faces come from?
And where do they go?

I wonder if there is one true face.
Who are you really?


Here’s a better question.
Who am I really?

And how would you know?

The author's comments:

I was inspired after reading The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne and reflecting about the many different facades that people use interchangeably, like masks. It made me think about what my real personality is and if it every actually existed. Maybe humans are all just born with different faces that constantly change places throughout daily life.
