Wrote this poem a couple of years ago was going through an emotionally battle, this poem helped me through it.

                       I walk around with the two faces of me, The person I was born and the person I thought people wanted me to be.

I changed my name to fit in and find freinds and a male companion who was true or at least that's what I wanted them to be.

Things are different from the life I thought I escaped.

           More drama, more lies, more abuse, no trust just hate.

I look in the mirror and what do I see?

                        The two faces of me,

                  The person I was born and the person I pretended to be.

I've learned from those two faces of deceit.

I must grow into the being God made from birth.

Carolyn was the person I became to escape my past to have freinds and be loved by a man.

I wasn't loving myself.

Carol Renee' Dye is the person I was born yet didn't like so I kept running cause I was afraid of who I felt I wasn't.

Now I must shed those two faces of me I want to learn to love, honor, and respect me for who I am.

So with a smile and faith in the King I no longer need those two faces of me

Just call me Carol Renee'.

Carol Renee, thanks for this truth-telling. Your line "I must grow into the being...." is a strong purpose statement. There is much fortitude in that. I especially appreciate these words of yours: " I kept running cause I was afraid of who I felt I wasn't." Many layers of identity in that clause, which tells of the falseness of that person "...I wasn't." Good revelations in here. ~~ Diana
