The Streaming of Skin-deep

With the desire to control the uncontrollable;

With careful watch to contain protected images;

Without respect for one's own aesthetic by scornful looking,

Your undesirable beauty began to form.

Who? The Impostor.


With the desire to be a better person by believing you're better than another person;

By depending your attitude to your judgement base on your first impression;

Without the room for improvement  for any relationship to evolve;

By being cheerful to other's folly or fall

which gives the false feeling of being brighter than the moon,

Your undesirable companion became your bestfriend.

Who? The Impostor.


I saw those looks many times before,

I heard and tasted the effect of it all.

It affects me so much that I lost my intrinsic vision.

I paid the price for being unfocused. 

It's undesirable!


Somehow, I can still see that look which sometimes I brave to trap...

staring down at me with an accusing eyes of an impostor.

With all their conviction of what is true to them with full accountability of their soul

just to prove they are higher than another.

Regardless of my hidden intention, fears, past experiences I can relate to the situation, 

or my failure to communicate to unveil the beauty of openness.


I hear and taste the effect of it with my full attention I tried to redeem.

I memorized the feelings from that look and though undesirable,

My alertness to catch an undefended glance from within

(which is present in each and everyone of us despite our ugliness)

is sharp enough to cut the rope of illusions!

So how to be aware of the impostor?

Who dare to ask "Who do you think you are?" 

rather than Who Am I?

    The ugly truth about humans is that we base our outlook of ourselves on others who lack in many things so that we can appear better, and we ignore the existing greatness of others because it makes us look small.

    That’s a big hit sis! harsh as the truth without sugarcoat! hard to swallow and digested… but undeniably admittable.
