brenda

 
I am disjointed and awkward
my sideways smile is uneasy and tentative
blue searching souls of the restless for understanding
if you ask me how I'm doing I will lie
it seems I lie a lot

portions of me are deeply hidden
I often wonder where my soul has gone
the me I know that the world knows

my voice sounds the same
but my inner voice has changed
i listen intently to her, this stranger
I can't reconcile this is a part of me
a side of me I'm more comfortable with

I talk with our creator
he tells me they are varying sides of me
his concern is...I keep the truth of me hidden
way down deep so deep I think I've lost myself
the key I think is learning how to be the woman I am
the genuine article more and less what others expect

it's difficult reconciling one's truths
and being warrior enough to speak them
