One at a time 
I can face my many
and varied personalities, 
recognize even, the uses
I have for each  of  them
from the shy quiet introvert 
to the strong willed intellectual,
the insightful wise woman
or the compassionate artist…
so many perspectives and opinions 
all encompassed in some form
within my overactive brain 
But when they all walk in
to the room together 
in the physical forms of my daughters 
and I am forced to confront these 
aspects of myself outside my own 
mind, suddenly,  I’m not sure who I am.
