Who I Am

I'm still struggling with this, but at least I know that I'm a daughter of the KING. I don't know exactly who the person is that I present to friends or to family or to different situations, but I think that with help I can find that out. Thanks so much for the hugs!



I think I can promise you
I'm not who I say I am
Everything I show on the outside
Making up for what I lack

I think I can promise you
I'm not someone to believe
Trust me when I say it
Don't think this person is me

The way I was
The way I used to be
So much sweeter, stronger
And so naïve
The way I used to think
The way I used to act
So much purer, prettier
Instead I wear a mask
I'm telling you now
You don't know who I am

I think I can promise you
Everything about me is a lie
Don't be fooled by my attitude
'Cause I'm just barely getting by

I think I can promise you
That if you saw my thoughts
You'd be surprised at
All the twisted ways I'm caught

The way I was
The way I used to be
So much sweeter, stronger
And so naïve
The way I used to think
The way I used to act
So much purer, prettier
Instead I wear a mask
I'm telling you now
I don't know who I am

And everything
Inside of me
Always in turmoil
Tossing
On tempests
Always in a storm
Everything I try to be
Turns out so that it's not me

I think I can promise you
That the person I present
Vivacious, caring
It's not the present tense

I think I can promise you
That I'm living a lie
Watch me as I crumble
The truth veiled in my eyes

The way I was
The way I used to be
So much sweeter, stronger
I liked being naïve
The way I used to think
The way I used to act
So much purer, prettier
Now I wear this mask
I'm telling you now
This is not who I am
Please, tell me how to find
Who I am
