This face I turn up to you, no one on earth has seen before

The poem ends with something like this :

"This face I turn up to you,
no one on earth has seen before"

The poem talks about (if I remember rightly), how we have double and triple selves within us. It is probably about 15 lines. I don't remember the title or the author.

I would very much appreciate if anyone can give me the entire poem.

Here you go:


---Alice Walker
New Face

I have learned not to worry about love;
but to honor its coming
with all my heart.
To examine the dark mysteries
of the blood
with headless heed and
swirl,
to know the rush of feelings
swift and flowing
as water.
The source appears to be
some inexhaustible
spring
within our twin and triple
selves;
the new face I turn up
to you
no one else on earth
has ever
seen.

Les,
Thank you so much. I have been looking for this poem for a while.

Just, yesterday I found this poetry archive. I think I am going to visit regularly now....

Thanks again,
Ram.
