My reflection
Is an illustration
Of depression.
Due to high expectations
From a population
Looking for perfection.
Wanting an alteration
In my disposition.
Demanding a modification
In my configuration.
They're against variation,
Against distinction.
However, there will be no conformation.
I will not give in to adaptation.
I will be the aberration.
And now, when I see my reflection,
I see determination
And satisfaction
Despite the strong conviction
Of a deluded nation.
