Hidden scars…I wanted no one else to see…

Shame

hid itself

distinctively

behind

pride,

causing

a skewed

perception

of my

self-image.

The mask

I wore so

comfortably

became

my idol…

my false

sense of

identity,

which so

easily covered

up the scars,

that I wanted

no one else

to see.

        Denise, I love YOUR “Artwork” – using your heartfelt, honest feelings to create your art. It resonates with and touches people. That’s what all good art does! Keep speaking and letting your voice be heard. You put many of my feelings into words which validates them, bears witness to them and makes me feel less alone. Thank you Denise. The Son has truly set you free to assist others in getting set free and staying free. Well done.
