“The Mask”

The Mask

This image of me you see
a woman of strength
of character and maturity
this woman, this image
it is not of me.
It is a mask
created in your mind
of what you think,
you hope,
you tolerate me to be.
The real me
you do not see
the real me cringes
in the face of responsibilities
the real me is afraid
in the face of reality
The real me is a coward
a shivering pacifist at heart.
No,
I am not the mighty red warrior
your heart and mind
has painted my mask to be
I am not the sainted soldier
toughened, roughened
in the sands of mediocrity
I am merely what I am
I am what Creator made me to be…

I am ME!
