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.

I can definately relate to this, a few months ago I decided I wasn't me at all, just who everyone wanted me to be. You commented on my poem (thanks!) and your stuff is truly amazing. I think it's great that you want to write a book, so do I. It's my goal to get the first one published by the time I'm 30. Congrats on getting this piece published, you really deserve it. ~Peace.
