“Vulnerable” Facets

Our current society has conditioned us

to present ourselves in a multitude of facets,

who we present on social media

may be different from at work,

from our account on a dating app,

from what we think others want to hear on a first date,

from a night out with childhood friends,

from a brunch with college friends,

from time with our families,

from time alone

We then allow ourselves,

or present ourselves,

to be perceived as being vulnerable

when in reality

we are merely revealing a facet

of who we are

in that moment,

or who we want to be,

but not our true selves
