She

Mask

She wandered aimlessly trying to find her way.

She acknowledged-  life had finally taken its toll.

She pondered- should she leave everything behind.

She contemplated-  should she stay and face her demons.

`

She was at the crossroads of her life.

She couldn’t avoid her feelings any longer.

She accepted the things she dread…

She admitted wasn’t confident as she seemed.

`

She confessed- she was insecure and sensitive at times.

She acknowledged-  she didn’t have it all together.

She admitted- she didn’t know everything.

She discovered- she needed help herself.

`

So…

She fought off stepping back in her shell to retreat.

She faced her challenges of feeling abandonment, rejection, and loneliness.

She realized she was tired of living an image that she barely recognized.

She took her mask off and faced the truth- she faced herself.
