Inas Essa



I'm not enough for me.
I've hunger for being many.
I've many dreams to fulfill,
Masks to put on,
Characters I've just created
And never saw the light.

So don't try to convince me
To be just one;
The multi characters within
Are waiting, eager and shouting
To have their share
To seize their turn!
