Dropping Costumes

Super human,

Don’t claim to be.

Playing Wonder Woman,

Not my priority.


Letting go of,

Stubborn pride’s game.

Tight, ill-fitting costume,

Won’t suit me.


Giving it to God,

Just for today.

Wearing my truth,

Like a shield of honor.


Taking time out…

One very precious moment,

To relax, unwind,

Be me!

(I actually love Wonder Woman.  Just wouldn’t wish to fill her shoes!)

  1. “Wearing my truth like a shield of honor”–YES! I think we are warrior women for God…and I’m so grateful I don’t have to fit my short round self into that cinching costume which hides no flaws 🙂 Blessings to you, Gilda 🙂
