I Have Many Faces

October 15, 2009

Close your eyes.. picture me.. What do you see?many-faces

I am only one person, with one mind, one soul, one heart.. but I have many faces.. Can you tell them apart?

Many say I have the face of an angel..strong and wise.. Look alittle closer.. Can you see the devil in my eyes?

In the morning when I awake.. I look in the mirror ans ask my self.. Which face shall I wear today?
For I have many faces..

Do you see a women torn between who she is and who she wants to be?
Do you see a mother who tries her best?
A women who hides her fears, holds in all her tears?
Do you see a friend? A lover?
Do you wish to seek and discover?
Do you see the child inside?
Do you see my wild side?
Do you see me as a writer? A delighter?
Do you see me as an employee? Future interior designer?

Do you see my rage? I feel like the true me has been locked in a cage..

Can you see my confusion?  Is this life just an illiusion?

Can you see my dreams?
Can you hear my screams?

Do you see my pain? I feel as if I am standing on the outside, looking in.. afraid of what may come..

Yet still thru each trial, I hold my head up an smile.. Acknowledge my prides..
Tell myself if I can make it thru today.. tomorrow will be o’kay..

So many faces… longing for embraces..

Now open your eyes.. look at me and tell me.. Who do you see?

    I think that this is my favorite poem of all time, it is amazing how much it is me.. I am super suprised I did not write it, it is right on target. EVERYTHING is crazy like my life.. even the interior design part.. I am going for my BA in it right now! Weird. I love it. Great job! Seriously wonderful!
