they called you out
but you didn’t answer.
you tried to stay objective to stay safe
its okay to admit it.
the situation woke you up
reminded you that you’ve fragmented your life
splintered it into categories of control
the you at work
at home
with friends
when you are alone
dressing up for each occasion
forgetting what you look like
under it all
who you are
i know you can hear hostility
see rejection
taste the contempt
that is why its a radical act
to be seen
to allow yourself to be known
to stand openly before others
i know it doesn’t come natural
but its worth doing
take small steps towards intergration
to share more of you are
some won’t respect you
but you might
