Who I Am

Sometimes you make my blood boil and you sometimes foil my long-term plans
My life is crazy and often changing
But you are the one thing that remains constant and keeps me sane
Life isn’t always what it seems
I pretend to be something I’m not
Every morning I wake and put on my make-up and become a whole different person
I go to school to make it seem as if everything is all right and as each day passes I get better at hiding my pain and tears
I feel as if you’re drifting away, leaving me in this cold deserted place
Leaving me to fend for myself
Leaving me alone in this world
You say nothing is wrong but I know you better than that
I know who you really are
I know that the man I fell in love with is still there
And I know you really love me but I need you to show me
Prove that you really mean what you say
Give me those three words, eight letters and one sentence
I know its always been there
And when it permanently shows
Then I will take my mask off and let people know who I really am
