My Adopted Self

Ever since I was born

I constantly searched —

For that mark of identity

Mirror to mirror conversations

lead to false impressions

Sheer darkness covered my thoughts

A placed appeared to be whimsical

I placed my sheet

To let know of my identity

A mixture of connections occurred

in habitat

A call of Visionary — said self

Many substitutes were laid out

A small image peaked out

Delicate being

Frighten in shadows of self

A relatable portrayal

Made me look closer

A chose her over and over

I encompassed into my hardwires

Took care as she wanted

To the world,

I adopted her

For me,

I am her!

She is my adopted self
