A Living Paradox

I want to be flashy
I'm just not quite ready yet
I want to show the world my art
I'm just not quite ready yet
I want to be fashionable
I'm just not quite ready yet
I'm a rough draft
I need editing before I can show off 
Stand out
Turn heads
Be me.
As much as I want to stand out
I also want to remain unnoticed
Be a rainbow and a cloud at the same time
And someday
Someday I'll be the one no one can not see
But for now I'll be the almost no one can truly see
