Daily Prompt: Dearly Departed

Daily Prompt: Dearly Departed.

Who was she? We never really knew.
Her life was a stage and she had the lead role, a role not clearly defined, no lines, no cues, no writers in the background laying out the plot.
She put on her costumes, each day acting out her life, playing the roles she’d accepted. Outgoing, happy, student, saleswoman, bartender, administrator, manager, caregiver, listener, wife, mother, survivor.
She wore her stage makeup as a mask.  The mask that kept the darkness at bay, kept the fear hidden and kept the world from knowing her. and without the mask even she didn’t know who she was.

About Reviewer Rose

Hi, my name is Rose, I'm no longer in the flush of youth, I have a common-law husband and two teenaged daughters, multiple pets, and more debt than I'm comfortable with! Anything sounding familiar? Well, its all too familiar to me and I plan on changing a few things around here. I'll keep the husband, kids and pets, but some things just need to change! I am embarking on a journey of discovery. Warning, this blog includes discovery of self, writing, learning and growing. There may be posts that you won't be comfortable reading, but I have supressed some things for so long, things I don't want to keep anymore, so will leave them here on these pages. I hope you will follow while I live, learn, heal, try, review and share, and I hope you can grow along with me in my pursuit of betterment!
