When I stay

at home

there is no need

for makeup

or fancy clothes.

When I go elsewhere

I have to look


Act like I am happy

like I am showing

the real me. . .

I am not myself.

I am me

when I am home

wearing no makeup

wearing comfy clothes.

I do not have to try

to hide who I am.

I get to be me.
