We are born as innocent babes

Fear is not part of our name

Words tossed to and fro

Can stunt our thoughts or help us grow.

As we grow, we begin to look at ourselves. We question if we are what we heard.  Are we like the other little girls or boys in school. Are we chubby. Are we not as smart as our siblings.

These feelings, I believe, fester like an open sore. They never begin to heal, instead they ooze with pus and grows slowly with us until we reach adulthood.  We make sure our body, hair and total image is what others would love to see. We question ourselves.

In time, perhaps not until middle age, we get tired of not enjoying the purpose God placed us here on earth for. We slowly crack the armor and let it fall. Our soul begins to shine. Our shoulders become less burdened. We smile. We begin to relax and let the person we truly are out; for everyone to see.
