There is a type of personality ravenous for attention,
addicted to being seen, heard, fed,
the center of drama, the “brave victim” to
wrongs created in its own head –
telling its stories so convincingly it believes
itself what it’s said.
There is a type of personality that is ego-driven,
hungry, desperate, willing to destroy
everything around it to get what it craves.
But fear not this much-nothing;
Truth and Love saves.
The fraud, the illusion, the counterfeit me/her/him/you
is not who we are, is not the real and true.
Watch it disappear and lose its gripping hold on us
when we strip off the mask to find what lies behind –
the innocent child, whole, healthy, free, kind,
to be made in the image and likeness of Love.
