Silly Putty

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.  

The End
