The Smell of Change

Location

Can you see from my clothes, 
 
all the things I know.
 
Adorned from head to toe in mediocrity.
 
I use to feel the need to exceed normality. 
 
Adorned with rainbows and glitter,
 
feathers and lace;
 
In the most flamboyant of ways. 
 
But people couldn't hear what I had to say.
 
They became awestruck on this entire phase. 
 
And I began to change. 
 
As i began to blend,
 
It seemed to mean
 
my voice.
 
Because no one will listen to a supposed crazy,
 
Standing here in my industrialized skinnies
 
and ombre sweater.
 
My words seem to impress. 
 
No longer limited by the way that I dress.
