Clash of the Self Identity Titans: The Miniseries

Heather has a Bachelor's Degree in English from Moravian College and has been freelance writing for more than 13 years.

Someone afraid of their own reflection in the full-length mirror

Definitely, not playing Snow White anytime soon

Every orifice in complete view of the Wicked Queen's magic looking glass

Getting critiqued by the now-defunct "Fashion Police"

Each morning wondering about every non-existent wrong

Afraid of their shadow encased in the frosty daylight shrink wrap

A compulsive apologizer asking for repetitive forgiveness

Even when there was nothing to forgive and forget

Tired of being a timid humanized version of Bambi in the headlights

Caught in the crosshairs of Elmer Fudd's hunting rifle

When he found you instead of his nemesis Bugs Bunny

Wondering when the fear subsides and the bravery pill steps in

Ready to take Superman's place and start leaping off tall buildings

Metaphorically speaking, of course

Time to be brave and embrace the day-to-day lunacy of life

The good, the bad, and the downright terrifying

Especially when it comes to being vulnerable

Taking off all the emotional and physical barb wire

More difficult than some would believe

Cuts, scrapes, and panic attacks abound until last piece gone

What will happen when it does?

Nobody knows; it has never gotten to that point before

Willing to give it a try as long as Elmer puts the gun down

And the whole Looney Tunes gang brings snacks to the party

Otherwise, they're not coming in.

No one will; the days of being taken advantage of are finished.

Elmer Fudd striking a pose.
