I hide behind it.
It shields me,
protects me,
from all of nature's follies
and all misjudged beliefs.

I hardly ever strip it off,
it being so helpful,
so useful for tact.

It's become part of me
So natural, so sure
That just a sentiment, just a word
will send it back sprawling, like a disease without a cure.

I doubt I'll ever master it,
that face that outwards is shown
whose words are thin and meaningless
but whose thoughts are for me alone.

I am a princess, all girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics. Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren't pretty or smart or young. They're still princesses, all of us." -Frances Hodgeson Burnett, A Little Princess
Live in the present, remember the past and fear not the future, for it doesn't exist and never shall. There is only now." _Christopher Paolini, Eldest

That's really good. I love. So much feeling to it!
