Behind the Curtain


I am a woman who hides behind a curtain

A woman who fears of being exposed

A woman who hides behind sarcasm and faulty bravery

I am a woman who fears loneliness

A woman who longs to have strength

A woman who needs praise to feel good about herself

I am a woman who tries her best everyday

A woman who refuses to give up

A woman who gets up when she is pushed down

I am strong

I am here to stay

I will not stay down for long

I look in the mirror and and I am happy with what I see

I count my blessings because I know how quickly they can fall

I count my blessings to have been through it all

I am a woman with no boundaries 

I am a woman who no longer hides behind a curtain
