I Would Rather Be

If forced to choose between Cassandra or the real me

To choose between the writer or the self-labeled outcast

Which would I choose?

Were I forced to drop one identity and keep the other

To be a woman of literacy or a woman of real life

Would I not choose Cassandra?

Which is my identity?

Which one would I rather be?

Cassandra is well-established; my true being is insecure.

I would rather be Cassandra.

The End
