The REAL Truth

There are times I feel haunted when I see the reflection in the mirror staring back at me. The depth of emotions hidden behind my eyes glares straight at me. Anger, frustration, disappointment, emptiness, loneliness...just to name a few. The memories of my past and the choices I've voluntarily made all cloud my mind. It's hard to believe those things really happened.

But...there's only a moment to live in this reflection. Time doesn't stand still. There's too much to do.

I force myself to snap out of the moment. I splash water on my face. I conjure up a semi-smile. I find my makeup pallet and begin to put my artistry to work. I look for my best dress or cutest skirt/shirt combination. I match up the perfect shoe. I tell myself that "today will be a great day" and I move along my day.

How do you cover up?

No one knows my struggles. No one knows my pain. No one feels my emotions. No one suspects a thing. All is covered up but nothing from the past has gone…
