Face in the mirror

Today morning I stood in front of the mirror and looked at the face in it. The face looked familiar, it could have been of any man, a face so common that it could easily get lost in the crowd, a face one may never notice or remember for long. The face has nothing remarkable about it, infact the hairstyle looks too ordinary with no style whatsoever, lips never break into smile unless forced, some facial hair is present on otherwise clear skin which make up the round face. Those who see this face, often remark that this person is too seedha much incapable of any wrong doing or understanding the pitfalls of life

When I look at this face I often wonder who this man really is? He is someone who enjoys solitude for sure, for he has been alone most of his life. He is someone who hates violence as his calm face amply reflects. Is he someone naughty? Can never be, someone with such straight a face can never be mischievous. Can this person have done something wrong in his life? no no he can never hurt anyone, his composed face has no traces of anyone meddling into others affairs. Then if this person is so straight is he a saint? Maybe yes he is some sort of a saint though he has his own flaws. A quiet man may not have many flaws but then he may have his own needs. He has slept with whores twice but was it too wrong to have done so?

When I look deeper at the face I wonder what this man has gone through. He ran away from deeply tormented relations and is very relieved to be away from chaos. But then there is still a hint of infulfillment somewhere, those eyes may look sad but don’t think they were born to be this way. But wait whats this? There is no trace of any love on this face, it is possible this person may have never understood much about love and care. It is possible he may have been alone most of his life so doesn’t get much about what unconditional love and relations are all about but then he also realizes that life is not complete without love. Maybe he yearns for love and companionship deep within and is seeking fulfillment somewhere or possibly this man is confused as to what he really wants from life

Looking deep into the face, which has a stoic tranquility, I wonder what the future holds for this man. If I ask this man he too may not be having answers, after all who knows what future beholds. But wait this man looks scared, yes in fact he is very afraid of death, darkness and disease. His soft face betrays no trace of his soft personality, which has been exploited by many till now for this man knows nothing about getting back. Didn’t I tell you this man is a saint?

This face also has many contradictions and paradoxes. If he is so straight, his life shouldn’t have had any evil deeds, if he is so aloof how can he have a sense of humor and if he is so simple how come he relishes alcohol so much? Perhaps this face holds many mysteries and is remarkably deceptive, it doesn’t say much but possibly hides a lot, it appears mostly pensive but no one knows what he thinks and it may appear unharmful which I believe it largely is. But this face is potent and has a thinking brain somewhere inside

Have you seen this man’s face anywhere? Do look out


  1. Just keep the thinking brain ticking and the world will acknowledge the face.
