This poem is one from my book of poetry Something for the Soul
this kind of relates to baggage in a way hope you enjoy it and get something from it.
Two faces of me
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 friends and a male companion
who was true or at least that's what I wanted them to be.
Things are no different from the life I thought I had escaped.
More drama, more lies, more abuse, no trust just hate.
I look in the mirror and what do I see?
The person I was born and the person I pretend to be.
The two faces of me
I've learned from those two faces of deceit.
I must grow into the being God made into from birth.
Carolyn was the person I became to escape my past have friends and be loved by a man.
I wasn't loving myself.
Carol Renee Dye I was born yet didn't like so I kept running cause I was afraid of I felt I wasn't.
Now I must shed those two faces of me
I want to learn to love, honor and respect myself for who I am.
So with a smile and faith from the king
I no longer need those two faces of me so just call me
