You wore a bold look,
shades of defiance grace your countenance
piercing those ostensible look and then
casting your mark on them,
they relentlessly try to shake it off
but it is crafted to last for long

you defy the societal norms
you turn rogue to the ones
who impose their ego on you,
for you define paths on your terms, abstract ones,
gray ones,
one with the mark of your signature smile for you’re a malapert soul
never to align with the world’s norm
