The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.
-Charles DuBois


Yesterday was Sunday. The day I dress up
and smile at everyone. Listen to everyone’s
problems and hand out free compliments. I
sit still and pay attention to the choir.
The never-do-anything-wrong girl.

During the week, I dress down. I act
like my friends and laugh at the cost of others.
I hug someone, then go and tell my friends how
ugly that someone looks today.
The go-along, tag-along girl.

At home, I am what my parents want
me to be. I sit still at dinner, do my
homework, listen to the stories they
tell of their day. The super-special daddy’s girl.

All of these faces I have confuse me. I’m never
quite sure who I am at the time, Or if I am the
right person with the right people. Yesterday,
I was the got-it-all-together girl. Today I’m the
not-sure-of-anything girl.

This is definitely how I live my life. I find myself confused a great deal on some days, most days just going through the motions of living a life. Amazing!

this is a beautiful poem, im sure many have said how they relate to this, but i really want to tell you that you captured something that i struggled with myself and only until recently did my different faces collide and i'm still dealing with the after affect of them

it was just nice to read that someone got it right in words :)
