We Hide! A Poem

We Hide! A Poem

We hide!

Behind work. Sick Children. Busy Children.

Behind husbands who need us to fluff their pillows and support their dreams.

Behind impending weight loss and nothing to wear.

We hide!

Behind unfinished websites, no business cards, no equipment and lack of know how.

We hide!

Behind social media; lurking on the edges, watching others win.

We hide!

Behind tomorrow being the right time. Not today. Not this moment.

We hide!

Behind our fears of failing.

Behind the impending tragedy of our success.

We hide!

Behind the names of others we think are better than we are.

We hide!

In plain sight. Looking busy with our dreams but merely treading water.

We hide!

Behind a promise to do it when every i is dotted and t is crossed.

We’re Broke!
