Nomad, Disavowed

How much damage can a lack of identity have?
Of regional identity, of cultural.

My youth was as an institutionalised nomad,
my accent, my voice is homeless.

People squint at my dialogue,
trying to pinpoint its origin.

My natural demeanor is that of a posh mongrel,
am i unique or just easy to disavow?
