Am I Who I Am?

Am I the woman who hears no devil?
Or the woman who hears the devil and then shuts ears?

Am I the woman who sees no evil?
Or the woman who sees the evil and closes eyes to it?

Am I the woman who speaks no vile?
Or the woman who keeps the vile bottled inside?

Am I the woman who does no sin?
Or the woman who covers her sinful tracks?

Am I the pure woman who this world sees?
Or the unholy woman whom I see?

  3. I agree with the other comments. 🙂 I think most of us ask ourselves these questions at some point.

      Yes we ask these questions but the answers are often hard to accept!

  5. Makes me wonder how many of us can truthfully say yes to the first part of each sentence. Although I do long to be more like that.

      It is tough to accept the truth about ourselves when the world has set standards that we don’t fit in!
