Shape Shifter

Shape Shifter

A Poem by B1ack_P3ter

i wrote this on 2/23/10 in my first period honors english class. idk what my inspiration was but i ussually pull stuff like this from my dark side. :)


A shapeshifter can be

Anything you see

Even a small insignificant bee.


They can become

Anything you bum

Even your own son.


Your best friend,

A grain of sand,

Or just a regular man.


Do you see yet?

What a shapeshifter is?

If you do then I've lost the bet.


A shapeshifter is you and me

Don't you see?

A person of many faces

Like we all can be.


A liar, A lover,

A crier who loves to blubber.

Your boss, your friend

No matter what they intend.


All wear masks,

Each very special,

But few see the trace

Of their true face...
