Hiding the truth
I conceal secrets within.
I look not to the future
Or what could have been.

Lost I am told
Yet looking I see.
Believe what you want
I’m differently perceived.

Letting very few in
I keep to myself.
I wander unaided
I fly alone stealth.

I keep my true self
Away from my world.
Among all these rocks
I shine like a pearl.

The course I am on
Wavers day to day.
I take the cards dealt
O come what may.
