One may cloak on a distinct identity that is self-assumed to accurately project the persona within. The real, the genuine… these, however, cannot be subjugated for long. Momentary sparks of falsity will eventually dim down, and out comes the truth. The hollowness of a deceptive character will one day give way to legitimacy, to sincerity, to honesty. The adulterated version of one’s personality will sooner or later run out of costumes… and left in its bare form is the actual, the valid, the authentic.
