Now you see me, now you don’t

When you look straight towards me

What does your mind think you see

Averting your gaze in buried fear

Or do you prolong a brooding stare

Am I exotic and dangerous together

Or an alluring but sinister aggressor

Am I a threat to your familiar ways

Do you dread your looming days

Am I not a mere human like you

Why do you see me like those few

You know not what you don’t see

Yet you do everything to judge me

Temper the march of your distaste

Slow a beat, let good sense dictate
