I express myself to the world,
Often through perceived expectations.
When I should live in my uniqueness,
The me plus God equation.
I aspire to be free from bondage,
Too much focus on what the world thinks.
Allowing myself to be a puppet,
Attached to societal strings.
Many a mask I could destroy,
By shedding my other-focused mindset.
I seek to live looking to God as my standard,
Admittedly, a challenging quest.
