Facing Ourselves

When you look at me
What do you see
Can you see the brave woman
I am trying to be

Or do you see my fear
My sense of being inferior
Can you see beneath my mask
Beneath the calm exterior

Sometimes we keep our true persona
Hidden right down deep
For fear of undue scrutiny
For fear we will be weak

But I think it’s quite alright
To show who we really are sometimes
To have the courage to face ourselves
And all that we might find

When we’re honest with ourselves
And all our flaws included
It will help us to accept ourselves
And not be so deluded

So, be true to yourself
And you will find your way
Be kind to yourself
And enjoy what you have today
