surrounded by friends,
yet inside, all alone
sat the girl with rainbow nails.
she who was once plagued with the need to blend,
to be just another clone
who once paid attention to all the details.
she had always felt the need to pretend,
the one who seemingly everyone outshone
tried her best, but to little avail.
she wondered, if this would one day lead to her bitter end,
if this was her future, written in stone
some nights alone, she would let out a wail.
but one day, she decided to transcend,
her old habits, were those she no longer condoned
for a new life, she was willing to fight tooth and nail.
after some time, she learnt to tend,
to her own wounds, she held her own
now she promised to live by her own rules, without fail.
inevitably, old clones begin to condescend,
however, from society's rules, the bird has flown
bringing colour to her life, she has lifted the veil.
the world can push many to their wit's end,
but she wants those to know, that there is power behind the throne
here's to the girl with rainbow nails.
