unmasked

Have you ever felt that you’re wearing a mask and at any time some how it will be pulled off? Then they will know.
I have.

God knows exactly who I am.
But you don’t
I’m not who I seem to be and neither are you
I try to be someone at work
sometimes I fail
I try to be a good wife for him
sometimes I fail
and a good mother for them
some times I fail
I want to be a good friend
sometimes I fail
I’m not who I seem to be and neither are you
God knows exactly who were are
sometimes we fail
He never does.

Milly, so true, so true.

I'm just glad that the one who has all the power is the one who does not fail.

I'm also glad that those who think they have all the power don't really have any... because they fail.

(Disclaimer: I put myself in the category of those who think they've got some power...)

Sometimes I don't even know who I am and sometimes I fail.
