Facade

We have so many sides to us
yet, we show the one “they” adore
who wouldn’t be called mad
who would conform to all the norms
fit in the society like a dress
without questions,

We have sides that define us
and others that control us
we have sides that we fear
the quagmire of expectations
gives way to a crisis
of “who we are”

Who are you if not a man, not a woman?
We have millions of identities
imposed upon us, messed up.
Perhaps we forget we are humans first
Imperfect in this world of divisions,
lies and pretentions

I am a student and an amateur writer. Every word I write comes from my heart. Being an introvert, writing is my escape. I write mostly about emotions and the nuances of life, for I have a heart that feels more.
