prayer of a girl washing her face

Prayer / Poetry:
Lord, I have washed off all the makeup -
I am left without any protection.
I see my face now -
with flaws and imperfections.
Why am I so frightened to have others see me as I really am?
Did I wear a makeup over my real person when I was out this evening?Lord, help me to face others honestly,
without a covering over my personality.
If I have imperfections and flaws in my real self,
help me to correct them.
Help me to correct my real self,
to please You, Who created me,
and to please others who live next to me.
Amen.
