“The Truth of Me”

If you walk in my shoes for only a mile
Wear my burdens and carry my smile

Parade my happiness, conceal my pain
Put up my umbrella to keep out the rain

Know the past, which has moulded my soul
Learn my secrets, hidden and untold

Revel in my triumphs, efforts now complete
Search for the reason behind each defeat

Understand my weaknesses and why they are there
Acknowledge the strength that has carried me here

Maybe then, you would TRULY see
The person I am, what it means to be me

An original poem by Donna Anderson
