What Everyone Sees
Everyone sees a confident, driven woman.
What they don’t see is the fear and doubt that lurk inside.
Everyone sees a woman quick to smile and joke.
What they don’t see are the tears and sorrows that threaten to consume her at times.
Everyone sees a kind, compassionate woman.
What they don’t see is the woman who so desperately wants to save because there were others in her life that she could not.
Everyone sees a woman with unending patience and strength.
What they don’t see are the times when she just wants to give up and buckle under the weight.
What everyone sees is what they want to see.
But do they see me?
