Chameleon

Hiding in plain sight
Camouflaged
Fading into the background
Shades and tones to match
True colours invisible to the eye.

Accent matched
Attitude adjusted
Body language suitable
Fitting right in
Being one with the environment.

Slave to the desire
Shackled to the wish
Tied to the need
To be one of them
To be just like them
Going along just to achieve admittance.

No one knows
Who you really are
No one realises
What you really think
No one has a clue
What you really feel.

Acceptance -
a mirage
Inclusion -
an illusion
Love and friendship –
based on deception.

Shedding your adjustable skin
Showing your true colours
Accepting rejection

Truth not illusion
Trust not deception -

Real life is worth a risk.
