I am the other insideThe doubt, the fear, the apprehensionLying hidden behind a gregarious charade masque.I am the other insideThe strident, the assertive, the outspokenConcealed in a gormless gomeral’s gaze.I am the other insideThe hermit, the recluse, the monachalObscured in a nomadic djellaba of the knight errantOutside I am the sum of many othersBalance forged like tempered steelIn the furnace of life.© Sheila Ash, 2018ashramblings
