I AM…

I am colorful but seriously misunderstood















I wonder when I’ll be accepted for who I am


I hear the voices of an audience behind the stage curtain



I see the row of clapping, entertained individuals




I want to be recognized for more than a professional pretender





I am colorful but seriously misunderstood








I pretend to be many different people onstage







I feel this may just be a concealing façade








I touch the fabric curtains as they rise; it’s my time to be someone else
I worry if maybe this is all an intricate, subconscious way to cope

I cry sometimes at this dreadful realization










I am colorful but seriously misunderstood






















I understand that I hide this side with flamboyance and feign optimism


I say to a few friends, I want to be different; I just want to be me



I dream that one day I can truly be myself, not a hobbit or a man




I try to mirror my desired image each and every day





I hope that one day I will be accepted for me, flaws and all






I am colorful and seriously misunderstood

I am Tanner Hall

A poem written for my English Honors class. The first few words were provided as the setup was more of template, so I cannot take credit for the "I cry", "I hope", etc. parts.
