Equalizing Dividends

Embarrassed really, I thought by now, I'd be somebody else

Confused, I suppose, how did I managed to lose myself?

Lonely and afraid, I find, survival is immense

Insecure and disposable, like a pack of cigarettes

Pretending seems to get me by the radar of my friends

Sharing seems to cost too much, and always cost me in the end

Eclipsing covers all my fear and any impending bends. Covered in the shadows awaiting my equalizing dividends

    Very relatable. I find that now, I know myself well. I do not need the Eclipse to hide anymore.
