Bonus reading of the poem The Mask I Wear - A poem expressing the deep desire to be witnessed while being terribly afraid of being seen.
I discovered this poem at the beginning of my healing journey. I read it aloud to members of the support group I attended with a quivering voice and shaking hands. As I recorded this reading I reflected on the difference between now and then. No more quivering voice or shaking hands. 😉 I wish I had known then that one day that would be possible.
