TRANSPARENT, YET OPAQUE

Like the prologue of a book,
that doesn’t give much away,

Like the green film of a leaf,
concealing millions of cells,

Like the fancy wrap around a gift,
thrilling, as each piece of tape is shredded,

The face is just a Surface,
one can never tell what lies inside.

It would never give away ,
the story of one’s life,

Or the millions of feelings running inside,
Or the contents of the soul, neatly wrapped underneath.

The face is just a surface.

Legible, yet illegible,
Readable, yet unreadable,
And transparent, yet opaque.
