Why am I to be blamed

if i say the color of the sky is Amber and it turns Byzantine in the dusk,
then why am I to be blamed?

if i sleep through the day and instead, i run through the night,
then why am I to be blamed?

if i say the truth is ugly and ugly is alright,
then why am I to be blamed?

if i scent strawberry sweet but i prefer the scent of the musk,
then why am I to be blamed?

i was mistaken for so long, but when i wear a mask,
why am i NOT to be blamed?

but every time i try to show who i really am, and turn on the light,
then why am I to be blamed?
