Artist's Description

he tries to remember what it was like
not to hide
not to conceal himself
his thoughts, his feelings
from the world
it feels like he’s always been like this
a chameleon
blending into the fabric of society
fitting in
being whatever was expected of him
invisible behind the camouflage

he can’t remember his first lie
when he first realized it was how
he would survive
how everyone survives
everyone lies
everyone hides
and nothing is as it appears
he can remember what it was like
what he was like
before the masks and the pretence
he remembers the lightness of being
the openness
