Expressing that which you feel inside, on the outside.
An exposition of angst against society.
A warning to all who might approach.
This look may not always scream "look at me",
Quite the contrary
Wanting to feel different when you know we're all the same
Playing at our lives, as if it's all some kind of game
Trying to be distinct, when you know you're just a carbon copy
A conformist's attempt at nonconformity,
Yet, lacking originality.
A scare them before they scare you tactic;
An exposition of the darkness that hides inside
The crevices of the mind, of the soul
A look that some might put on just for show
An expression of the lonesome feeling that one feels inside
What you wear when you don't want to hide
The pain of your heart:
Which you wish to express, but don't know where to start
A way of connecting with the darkness
that lurks within: the original sin
An unanswerable question
with many places to begin
