Who will I be?
Who will I be made to be?
Will I be a stylized image of myself?
Will I be the person I want to be?
Will they darken me, lighten me, straighten me.... Will I fold under pressure?
And become what it is that everyone thinks I should be?
Or will I resist the temptation and stand my ground and be happy in just being me?
Darken me....cover me in soot.....when you clean me and it appears that have become ten shades lighter, purposefully darken me.......
