The Human Face

Do you ever stop and wonder
How the human face
Can look so different
In such a cramped-up space?

A totally different look
That you see from one another
Even if you compare
A sister and her brother

Although families do tend to have
Features that are similar
And side by side
They can look familiar

Occasionally we’ll hear
“Why you look just like
So and So
In this bright sunlight”

But folks are usually as different
As night and day
And it makes me wonder
How they get that way

I just wanted to share
These thoughts with you
And ask if you have ever
Been curious too!
