Not Really Me - Poem by Rosi Fousse

I hate to hide
I know I've lied
But who I am
Is not who they want

I try to be perfect
To fall into
their standards
But I'm really getting tired
Of hiding
And lying
And pretending
That I'm something I'm not

They hate me
They don't know it yet
But they hate me
They don't even know me
And they think they love me
But they don't
They can't

They judge
They try to change you
They make you into this
Twisted morphed version
Of what yu used to be

Then you lose yourself
You forget who you are
You try to dig up
Some kind of resemblance
Of your true self

You scramble
You starve your soul
You learn to trust no one
Love no one
Fear every one
And everything

I'm not really me
I'm technically me
but not really

Can't they love me unconditionally for once with out judging?
