He used to hate
Always being lost
Into the background.

Until he embraced
His life
As a chameleon.

Are not a problem
When nobody remembers

Obsessed with names,
Labels and walls,
He found a special kind
Of freedom.

No one can pin you down
Or classify you
When you can jump at will
Amongst their carefully tagged
