show yourself

each morning she
sorts through
her collection
of masks
trying to decide
which one
to wear that
will cause her
the least
amount
of pain
carefully avoiding
the mirror until
it is in place
so afraid to
show herself
to her self

Thought-provoking; sometimes we are reticent to share our truest selves.
