Who Am I? - Poem by Natalie Rosario

Who Am I?

I never felt like submitting myself
To these people who all seem the same
I'm trapped in the darkness of a room
In a cell wanting to escape
I want to be able to find myself
But I'm afraid to touch a wall a few feet away from me
And I'm scared to leave
Even if there is nothing that holds me back
I must find me
But I don't want to suffer
I wear a mask
To look like the others
Since I don't know who I am
I expect the worst, and I endure
I'm fed up with pretending that I am strong
So I play corpse,
So I don't die
I can't keep hiding in this cell
And faking a person I'm not
So people won't question me and attack me for being strange
I can't lie to myself and hide in shame
I must find me
And not let no one take my soul away from me
In this darkness I continue blind so I can find myself
And set myself free from these people who just want to use me
