"Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing."
– Mother Teresa

She comes home
Hair tied up
Glasses instead of contacts
Make-up washed away
Tight clothing removed
Sweats pulled on
Heels kicked off
Now unrecognizable
Headphones blaring
Pen scrawling across a journal
Tears slipping down her face
As she tries to hold herself together
She allows her true self to show
For the first time today
