don’t be afraid
to become more
more misunderstood
to show your underside
that reveals some crazing
a rough side
an uncultured comment
a quirky edge

but prepare
to be estranged
for lesser infractions
shunned after some cruel unmasking
as others serve up
their own emotional bankruptcy

to counter your revelation
your imperfection

their fear...
