​We are different you and I, 

And I admit I long to be brash and honest as I move within your world… 

But all I am is jarring in your space, 

So I must keep the mask upon my face… 

This outer skin that’s thin veneer and pleasing, 

For human interactions must have easings

So coming close i do not wear upon the finer sensibilities… 

And betray the alieness within me.
