Brooklyn Bridge - Gali Davar - jGirls Magazine

I can blend
Match the hue of my surroundings
If you glance by I am indistinguishable
But if you look closely
You can see the gleam of my eyes

I have spent
So much of my life
Trying to blend with my environment
That I have forgotten
What my true color is
If I even have one anymore
