You need faces

Your trouble gives you identity
Your suffering a sense of virtue

To preserve your place
In hearts of others
You demonize the ones that hurt you

You create a heaven, you create a hell
And a bridge you refuse to cross

You use (or abuse) it to point you finger
And blame someone else
For innocence lost

Instead, I suggest

You cross the bridge, many times over
Mingle with crowds
Stand shoulder to shoulder

Refuse to be tied
To your villain or your saviour
Refuse to be called
A success or a failure

Refuse to be labeled
But keep the bridge

Keep changing faces
Because faces, you need

You need endless expressions
To avoid pretentious questions
Desperate to tie you
only to one shore

Desperate to keep you
away from sanity

Away from being whole
