Breaking Free

Crowded together
for what seems
like forever to
manufacture a moment
in a plastic-made sun
wearing a manufactured
smile having plastic-made

within which dwell  the different

enough to draw
together our daily vibrancy.
Through the artificial
smiles and dignities
fastened down with
Elmer’s Glue comes
the gleam of a real
ability electrified
by a true agility
layered with sincere
tranquility reminding us
that we are the true
star despite any
flaw or futility.
