we are told
to define
who we are
to show that
we stand out-

we are told
to shine.

here is who i am.

i am a mirage.

i am a shape-shifter
magician
a Harry Houdini
a who
will i be
today?

i am red
and blue
and green
and all of the
colors of the
rainbow.

i am a
chameleon.

i spinning
under flashing strobe lights
i am singing
melodies.

i am crying,
i am breaking,
i am falling.

i am shining.

I really liked your poem! It made me think of the pressures surrounding growing up and attempting to do everything perfectly.
