Vital Secret

Behind the physique

Upon close inspection

Is a vital secret

 

The philosophy when alone,

"Defy the stereotype";

When with others,

"Conform"

 

Mixed self-perception:

One's own enemy

or one's best friend?

 

What does one think of me?

Do they see me as I see myself?

Do they always hate me?

Do they always love me?

Who is "they"?

 

Can I be my own person

Or shall I forever be hidden?
