Bonus Post: “I Don’t Know Her” (A Mara Prose Poem)


There she is, I fight hard to keep her at bay
I don’t recognize her but she knows me well
She remains hidden until she senses weakness
Then she dims my light and my soul is left in shambles

I don’t recognize  her but she knows me well
She uses fear to hinder me
She makes me believe I don’t deserve more
She is so convincing at times, I feel like I am losing my mind

I don’t recognize her but she knows me better than I know myself
She tells me I’m failing
She pokes fun at my success
Her taunts race through my mind
Because I don’t know her but she knows me well

If I’m not careful, I will take on her persona
If I don’t disassociate myself, she will become a dominant force within me
If I don’t keep reaching for the light, her darkness will over take me
Because I don’t know her but she knows me well
