Who am I today, a poem for @JennaRoseSimon by Tracy Diane Miller

Scattered across the floor
A collection of faces
Staring back at me
Which face will I choose
Today who do I need to be
Right now
I have no face
Right now
I have no wrath
Right now
I wrestle with my feelings
Without a map to provide a clear path
Yet despite this uncertainty
Yet despite this fear
I will no longer remain silent
I will keep my voice near
For anyone who has tried to keep me silent
Know it is I who define me
And whatever face that I choose to wear for all to see
