A Beautiful Facade


Sensitive people faced with the prospect of a camera portrait put on a face they think is the one they would like to show to the world… Every so often what lies behind the facade is rare and more wonderful than the subject knows or dares to believe.

A Beautiful Facade

by Carmen H Gray

Smash it to pieces

The False Face

You wear

To hide

The soft underbelly

The Shadow Self

Rather, the Real Self

We are all Hypocrites


The Perfect Portrait

The paint on the canvas

You find

A blank space

The undeveloped opacity

Of newness

And boundless possibility
