strange faces

when you meet a stranger
it’s remarkable
the encounter you share
leaves an imprint
not be forgotten
it warms your heart
and allows you to continue
to be you
as for our everyday people
you cross paths
there may be polite words
such as thank you or nice job
it just doesn’t feel the same
a stranger does not know you
does not control you
has nothing to hold over you
they see only what you give them
unlike the someone you know
who may overlook you
judge you
label you
a stranger can see you
angels come in all sorts of faces
show up in the strange of places
It’s difficult to admit
that those you’ve known for years
knows how to play you
and then there’s those you know for moments
that confirm you
even though those you love
may not see you
know you are what you know you are
tomorrow,you’ll meet a stranger
that tells you so
