She – Daily Prompt

Mask

MASK#1

She wandered aimlessly trying to find her way, but now

she acknowledges life has finally taken its toll.

She ponders should she leave everything behind?

She contemplates should she stay and face her demons?

She has come to the crossroads of her life.

She can’t any longer avoid her feelings.

She accepts the things she dreads she must face…

She is ready to admit she isn’t the outgoing, confident,

the lady she always seems.

She confesses she is insecure and sensitive at times.

She acknowledges she doesn’t have it all together, and

She admits she fights off stepping in her shell

to retreat.

She also faces her challenges of feeling of abandonment,

rejection, and loneliness at times.

She is tired of living an image –

one she barely recognizes, so

She takes off her mask, and

She faces Herself.
