Pearls and Dreams It is quite interesting ... the post below, I was in a rather contemplative mood, but did not think I was letting much of 'me' show through ... did not feel an excessive amount of pain when writing it ... just felt like writing ..and being real ... after an email exchange with my pastor (no, he doesn't have my blog address ) it got me thinking ... and yet ... in person, I can't seem to let the real me show ... and in writing, it shows even when I don't mean for it to show. hmmmm
Now if I can combine the writer in me with the verbal part of me ....
Heart of Lace
by Peggikaye Eagler

The mask that I wear,
Hides a wall of tears.
The smile shines bright,
Hiding shadows of fears.

You ask me, I'm fine,
But my heart cries in pain.
You hear my laughter,
Not the whispers of shame.

What I show my friends,
Is not what's inside.
What is shown to the world,
Covers well what I hide.

The mask seems so thick,
It's glued to my face.
The clothing of stability,
Covers a heart of torn lace.

Just how to unmask,
My coverings of show.
Just how to trust,
Is something I don't know.

Will I ever attain
Who I long to be?
If I'm hiding behind
A person who is not me?
