June Blog Challenge Day 24: FACE
I wrote a poem a little over a year ago called Who do you see? that was all about what I believe others see in my face verses what I see. At that point, I was still in denial that food was any part of my problems and was in a pretty painful place at the time. I've been surprised at how many times poems have appeared in my journal. They seem to flow on their own accord. What I see on the screen when I pause has often been startling, if only because it's brutally honest. I'd like to say that the pain behind this poem is no longer there, but that wouldn't be honest. I planned to share it in this post, and have it saved separately, in case I change my mind, but for now, I am just not ready to let other eyes linger over the words.
I really do hope that one day, I can see myself as others do.
Prompt: Just as we all have soul, we all have a face. What do you see when you look into your own eyes? Or maybe the word “face” conjures up a visual of another who has been kind to you, or mean to you. Let your mind go free and let the word “face” tell you what to share today.
