The face. Embedded in the soul of the graveyard, the church. The face so old it's covered in moss, almost acting as wrinkles. The moss only hides what once was beautiful. Although, take the moss away to reveal your beauty and it removes the character and truth away; like a lie, like fake face. The fake face hiding the pain and sorrow it's caused to its children, to its family, to its village. The face. Representing and reminding villages of horror and darkness it's caused. It represented a soul, once, before it represented everyone's worst fear, Death. That face.
