Becoming Me



Trapped

In the confines of expectation

Immured

In an image, not me

I smile

They say I’m beautiful

I behave

Fulfilling an unwanted role


Fraudulent fallacy

Let me leave

Escape to the pool of truth

Immersing myself

Visions of lotus


Wash the toxicity away

Help me transform

Become the new moon

Unleash the chains from ambition


I emerge

Free from your coverings

My nudity

Appalling to oppressors

I ascend

To the place I was destined

Reborn

I finally smile
