What’s the purpose of owning opinions if you’re too afraid to show them?

Humans are in need of a lesson;

one of freedom of expression.

The dread of judgment and absence of acceptance

causes indictment lacking conviction,

accusation devoid of evidence.  

Imperfections are evident, nobody is heaven-sent.

Balancing true self with the mainstream;

the scale sinks in liking of the latter.

Jealousy of jubilation often expressed through banter;

in turn develops insecurities, true self no longer matters.

False faces are painted to hide the oblivious enchantment,

but when the painting is hung up, it will forever be slanted.

Made to seem as malfunctions, when it is in fact wonderful uniqueness-

make your differences your strengths,

and painting your weakness.
