An illusion.

Is that who I am?

A child who simply plays pretend?

They say we live up to our names.

Gosh, Darn, it’s driving me insane.


I am a picture of beauty, my blemishes and scars covered in a flurry.

I am a picture of youth, my wrinkly truth hidden unseen.

I am a melting pot of talent,

My insecurity covered thickly in words apparent.


Illusion. I am me.

I am not what you see,

I am not one, but free.


I am bound by fear,

I am freed by truth,

If only I see inside,

If only I seize my youth.


Thanks for reading,
Much Love,
