Transparent

Transparent

1 min 202 1 min 202

When I was five

I was transparent

I wore my heart on my sleeve

I told everyone what I thought

To have them guffaw

And roar in laughter


When I was twelve

I was translucent

They could see bits of me

They would try to decipher me

But they would never see the full picture

The clear image

Of who I was


Now I am sixteen

I am opaque

Nobody knows who I am

I can hide my emotions

In an icy cold mask

I have pulled the shutters

To the windows

That was transparent for so long
