Who I Am

Folder: 
Personal (Hope)

I can't be myself

because I don't know who I am.

 

My soul is foul;

my heart is dark.

 

Is there a meaning to my pain?

 

Why does it only rain 

when I'm all alone?

 

I'm broken by my vices,

the darkness that I've 

stepped into. 

 

My purity has been tarnished;

my hope vanished.

 

My mind is a mess,

my thoughts in chaos. 

 

I have never known peace;

there's a war within.

 

I can't be myself

because I don't know who I am.

 

Maybe who I am 

isn't defined by what's inside.

 

Maybe I'm looking 

in the wrong place.
