This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 11; the eleventh edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.
I leave everything behind and come with you. I leave everything behind even when I don’t want to. I leave everything behind because I am asked to. Nobody sees my sorrows, nor they notice my pain. My duty is all that matters, my emotions stay hidden.
When I cry and shed a tear, you think it is a tear of joy. A tear of joy to express my happiness. A tear of joy to celebrate your success. Joy is all that you see, tear is all that remains, while the truth is hidden.
I am the pillar of my family. I have to be strong enough to face the challenges. I have to be strong enough to take care of the weak you, I have to be strong enough to take care of the weak me. If you break down, you are human; if I break down, I am weak. My support is all you need; my weakness must always be hidden!
You see my face to judge my beauty. You see my clothes, to judge my outer self. You look at me and smile. Your smile is for the person I am not. You smile is for the person you want me to be. My mask is appreciated, but my inner beauty is forced to stay hidden..
People call me mysterious. But I am merely the person I have been forced to be. My mystery is my sadness and weakness, my emotions and my thoughts; each and every reaction of me you don’t want to see. Each and every reaction of me that you are scared of. Each and every reaction of me which you want to believe that it does not exist.
All I want is acceptance. All I want is acceptance of my wishes. All I want is acceptance of ME – the way I am – my individuality. All I want is an acceptance of the person that I am and not the person you want me to be.
I want you to be proud of the REAL ME and the HIDDEN ME. I want to be the same person from outside and from within.
I am a woman and I want to be myself. I am a woman and I want to feel proud of being one…
