A manifesto for teenagers

Everyone tells you to be yourself.

But if your self feels like a stranger
who walks beside you,
but not inside you,
you do not have to know
everything about that person yet.

Do you remember when you dressed up
in capes and masks and fairy wings?

There is wisdom in costumes.

So dress your stranger up as often as you please
with the most colourful predictions
of who they might be
and one day the answer
of who you are
will slide inside you so quietly
you will have just enough time
to blow that stranger a kiss.
