woman wearing multiple hats

Wearing hats of different styles

Array of color, hue;

Forgetting how to wear the hat

Especially designed for you.

External issues always at hand

The hat of mother, wife;

The various roles, business, boardroom

High demands in life.

Some hats glean from one another

In pursuit of  greater sense of self;

Instead of finding truth in their own mirror

Wearing the hat of someone else.

Living life,  playing roles

Unhappy and all of that;

When true identity is lost

From wearing far too many hats.
