I wondered who I am
If I’m defined as to who I’ll be
Or who I really am
Do they see?
See the real me?
Or do they judge me by the peers that I am with
I feel misunderstood often
I even misunderstand myself
I need to find myself
And they need to stop labelling me
I see that face, oh so familiar
Been so long since I’ve seen it
It was in hiding all these years.
Afraid of the light
So I clung to the shadows
Has it really been so long?
I see a face stare back but I do not recognize it
I know it used to be one I know so dearly
Now, it is just a face
of a person that I was once
of the person that I used to know
*The title was taken from Gotye’s song “Somebody That I Used To Know”
I do not see me
I do not see my face
I see what people tell me to be
and I feel shackled, kept in prison am I
I see only fog, a face but not mine
I do not know who I am……..
I don’t know what to make of me
I often wonder…..am I still me?
