Peacock

I am a peacock preening feathers
So you might not notice
How slight I really am.

Maintain this sheen make it gleam
Lest it betray my fear
Of prying eyes
From fiendish spies.

So many layers built upon
For year after year after year
I don’t remember the colour
Of my own natural skin.

There are few and far between
That see me as I am,
When days length gives way
To evenings hold and nights sway,
All the shimmer and shine
Of my prized plumage 
Means nothing in the dark.

The fear of being known 
As well of being unknown
Keeps me painted today,
Now you know my secret
Seen the crack in my veneer,
When twilights comes
And the brilliance of the sun
Angles just right I’ll see yours too.

Wear your flaw proudly
It’s what makes you different
Not just another zoo attraction
Be a rebel a renegade
Choose to boil or freeze
No matter the centigrade.
