Fern

They want to be adored

For what they are not

Caught in an illusion

Distraught by their lack of perfection

A fear of reflection

Simmering in their psyche

So fragile, so distanced, distracted

From who they really are

Yet to understand

That art can capture

Their very essence

And hold that hand

And say

Stay.
