Be your Authentic Self by Mariann Carroll

Take your Mask off

Who Are You, Do you Know?

What is within, do you let it Show?

I know Who I am ?

I am the best authentic me,

You will ever know.

I am kind

I don’t like it when ,I have to be mean .

I cannot take abused so I have to say

A Loud No !!!

I love having fun and enjoying life.

Why do you have to be a party pooper

and destroy my life dream by hiding

behind every scene, I try to create.

I love volunteering.

You put a stop to that

By trying to amplify my fear of you.

For now on,

I will not give that power

Over me ….

This Mask is no longer needed

It does not shield me from the power

You think you had over me.

I am me and I will

Take back the true me.

I don’t need to be mean , when you

Are lurking around me.

I will just ignore you

Like a bee.

You won’t sting me

If I don’t acknowledge you

You can hurt me.

Your sting is just temporary.

Don’t pretend to me

And take
