I am, broken,
On the inside where you can't see
With every day, that I live,
I exist so painfully

I am, bitter,
At what this world has done to me
Sometimes I wonder, why it's so hard,
For me to just live happily

I am, frustrated,
At all the things I see
I don't understand, why people don't change,
Why people just don't believe

I am, angry,
At myself for the things I've done
And I know that I'll spend, the rest of my life
Trying to pay back everyone

I am, afraid,
There is so much I don't understand
No matter how hard, that I look,
Sometimes I fail to see the plan

I am, pain,
In mind, body, and soul
That pain has defined, who I am,
And I refuse to let it go

I am, confused,
It's hard to know what to choose
But I know I have to make a choice,
Because there is too much I stand to lose

I am, not the answers,
That inside I know you seek
And though I'm not the answer, at least I know,
That I'm not part of the disease

I am, compassion,
I really know just how you feel
I know that the, monsters in your mind,
Sometimes seem so real

I am, a love,
That encompasses everything
Who you are, and where you're from,
Makes no difference to me

I am...
All of this and more!(All of this and more!)
Even though sometimes I don't know!
What I'm here for
I am!(I am!)
The sum of all my years!
The sum of all my tears,
Upon reflection, everything is clear
I am!(I am!)
More than I deserve to be!
I am a walking revolution,
Changing everyone I meet!
I am!
All of this and more!
Even though I have moments,
In which I'm really not sure
I am...
All that you see!
When the dust settles, all that matters,
Is that I am me

Sometimes, it's a good idea to reflect on your life, and see what makes you who you are. It's not easy, to look deeply into yourself, to see what makes you tick.

Everyone is afraid of truth, especially truth about themselves.

Don't be, that truth is who you are. Embrace it.

Thank you and thank you. :)

And please send me a note about that, though I caution you that with pieces which are directly about me, I tend to not want others to record them. I will hear you out though, one never knows what can happen. :)

:icontearyplz:: But it is so easier to live in the lies to tell to yourself , because at the end of the day the truth really hurts. But I love this piece!
I am, angry,

I had stop and cry there because it is true about myself. I feel as if no matter how hard I try the things I've done will come back and I will spend my life trying to pay everyone back and I am afraid because while I might be mature and ahead of my friends I am below everyone older than me and there is so much I don't understand and that scares me to no end. :heart: Thank you for writing this

The problem is, later in life, you become the lies, and everyone but you can see it, and then all you have is you, and you won't even know who you are.

And then you have nothing.

I think I'm sadly there. Except the part were everyone can see.... But it's so hard to let go of the lies when some of them are all you've ever known
