Day 5~~CONCEALED and UNCONCEALED
A change of identity, a new person appears.
My image and appearance have altered.
My concealment is total, camouflage real,
A change of job and a new location,
Total separation from family and friends.
Lost in the Metropolis, total anonymity,
The past long forgotten, history concealed.
My past is no longer, totally obliterated.
Twenty years have rolled by since my mistake
A long peaceful period of safe concealment,
I feel relaxed, content and certainly complacent.
Lately I have noticed shadows shifting around,
Vaguely familiar long forgotten faces following.
Thought projected into reality. Fear returns to
Challenge my secure complacent disposition,
My disguise ripped to shreds, I am now.
