A little deviation from the norm….
It’s been a while since I’ve written any poetry or added to the poems section of this blog but for one reason or another I’ve been reflecting a lot recently. It reminded me of this poetic effort from a while back. Even now, roughly five years later, it still rings true.
Hidden From Prying Eyes
Deep inside me
Hidden from prying eyes
The public “me”
Paints on the smile
And glides through the working day.
The mummy “me”
Offers cuddles and hugs
Showering my children in unconditional love.
The friend “me”
Is calm and loyal
Always there to support and assist
The real “me”
Nervous and scared
Frightened she’s found by prying eyes.
