My whole life I've been silly putty. I'd put on fake smiles, make false laughs, and wear fictional masks. I'd take on whatever form I needed to belong and not stand out. I mimicked what I saw around me, just has silly putty copies the inked words from text. In fear of being outed as gay, I molded myself a fabricated personality.
Silly putty is a great thing to play with, but don't become it.
