Identity

, ,

“Inspired by the writing of Poly Styrene (of 1970’s UK punk band X-Ray Spex) This piece is about the battles we face within ourselves. We often feel forced to present ourselves publicly – at odds with who we really are. Learning to be honest about who we are to ourselves and others is one of life’s most difficult but precious lessons. Identity is the crisis – can’t you see? When you look in the mirror do you see yourself? Do you see yourself on the TV screen? Do you see yourself in a magazine? When you see yourself does it make you scream? When you look in the mirror do you smash it quick? Do you take the glass and slash your wrist? Did you do it for fame? Did you do it in a fit? Did you do it before you read about it?”
