I read this poem at work.. It made me feel stripped bare.

The Woman I am

The WOMAN I am

Hides deep in me

Beneath the WOMAN

I seem to be.

She hides away
From the stranger’s eye-

She is not know

To the passers-by.

She goes her way,

The WOMAN I seem,

But the WOMAN I am

Withdraws to dream!

The WOMAN I seem

Goes carelessly-

When love goes by

Does not seem to see.

But the WOMAN I am

Knows sudden fear…

And hides more deeply

When love draws near!

For love might look closely

Perhaps.. and see

Her beneath the WOMAN

I seem to be!
