Shrew? me?……. yes you!
oh my I had not thought of myself as a shrew…
hmmm what to do…
oh, the dictionary says I’m a cute mammal
with a long pointed snout
and tiny eyes…. kinda cute….
oooooh, you don’t mean that shrew!
oh oh, a shrew is also a bad-tempered, aggressively assertive woman
really, this is what you think of me
oh my goodness….. your reality is your perspective isn’t it???
so somewhere in my personality I must demonstrate such traits
if I care for you , which I do
I must assume some responsibility
for how I am perceived…
yes… I must, I must…
small in this world I may be
but the power of love
is huge, it will help me to
make the changes in my life that I need to
so the cute shrew I’ll be
by setting the negative in me free.
