|Self-portrait, Vivian Maier
Feeling Plain Jane, odd one out.
Preoccupied with finding beauty,
hiding, waiting to be discovered.
My solitary life can make me blue.
Sometimes with the lighting just so,
fancy myself the Cinderella of 5th Avenue.
Rushing to find the perfect scene
before my glass slipper falls off,
reminding me who I really am.
