Under Exteriors

Hidden under exteriors
of callous skin and eyes
that see far into the distance
there are people.

They learned to play the trumpet
the violin
they apprenticed as barbers
created families
fell into a life
(possibly of their own choosing)
that gave them meaning
filled them with pride
and provided for them
a desire that forced their hands.

Though they could be considered proud
they will hardly talk about it at all
the actions of their surroundings
haven spoken more than enough
