Costume

 

Have you ever wondered

If someone you know

were made of a costume?

Something put on to be

something they are not?

 

I had worn a costume

up until I was in 8th grade, then my costume shattered.

My costume you ask was a girl.

A girl that had medium length hair and

wore tomboy or emo clothing.

 

My hair buzzed and my cloths locked away

I started slowly removing all the walls that

I created. To break these threads I told myself.

 

A few more strings i tell myself.

A few more times I yell. Now at

a medium I have a few strands left.

Now only cut them away.

 

No more costumes, no more play,

I shall fight to live and love myself

my way!

 

From denial to acceptance

I feel my spirit soar! I'm no

longer afraid now, I'm not

Hiding anymore.
