Savoring Meditation #199: Prison of the Shy

Rate: 0 Flag

(Tonight I found this poem that I wrote long long ago on another April Day.  I share it with my friends.)

I live in an invisible shell

Too thick to crack it seems.

I see out of it so very well




But can others see the real me?


I hammer my fists in this prison

Hoping soon a crack will appear.

I pray to God that for some reason

My constant plea she will hear.


To be a giggling bubbling sort

Full of love and in awe of life.

A breathing soul proud to be alive,

To be a real woman, mother and wife.


So hammer on this shell with me.

Perhaps together we will make a dent.

A child wants to grow, not just be.

But to become the person God sent.
