The Three of Me

Three unique people,
live inside of me.
When difficulties come,
they respond differently.

Susie curls up
avoiding the situation —
shivering and quaking
at the thought of confrontation.

Susan grabs a book —
runs away to lands unseen —
living vicariously
through someone else’s dream.

Sue, on the other hand,
longs to stand up and fight.
She wants to conquer the problem,
using all her force and might.

When a trial comes my way,
a war brews inside of me,
who will win the battle;
Sue, Susan, or little Susie?
