Favorite Quote:
But sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.
-1 Peter 3:15


Insecurity has many a name, many a type.
But all can be found in the face.
When face is covered with locks of hair,
It is plainest for the eye to see.

Another hides behind a confidence of faux,
Made up and fashion-forward is its name.
One looks, and one sees,
A message of togetherness, and popularity.
Behind the mask, lies the truth--
A woman, so shamed of she.

Is this I, is this Me?
To be sure, ask this of yourself--
Could you, would you,
Walk out the door,
With hair pulled up in haste,
And an un-made-up face?
If not the answer is plain to all.
The confidence you thought you had is false.
And your carefully construed mask, is nothing but deceit.

So crafty it is, that you fooled all, even self.
True Beauty do you have?
Or, by chance, Self Confidence?
Or is it naught but insecurity?


The author's comments:
A message for all teen girls to hear, for by nature, us women are insecure. I find myself battling with this occaisionally, but their was a time in my life, where all I wore wer big baggy jackets, even in the summer. I had a good friend then, Lillie, who was always ready with a compliment. She gave me the confidence to just be myself, and not care what others think.
