Who am I?
What do you want me to be?


Others
Thatís all that I am made up of.
Who am I?
Inside Iím shy
Inside Iím different
Inside, Iím caring.
Inside, Iím nothing I want to be.

5 years of false happiness
15 of displeasure
What will the next 10 be?
What must I make of myself?
What will I be?
Who am I?
What do you want me to be?

Inside I feel walked on,
By anything and everything
Only betrayed by the best.
The bestÖ
Everyone other than myself

5 years of false happiness
15 of displeasure
What will the next 10 be?
What must I make of myself?
What will I be?
Who am I?
What do you want me to be?

Inside I feel Iím trapped in a box
Just screaming to be let out
The walls closing in
It gets tougher to express who I am

5 years of false happiness
15 of displeasure
What will the next 10 be?
What must I make of myself?
What will I be?

Who am I?
What do you want me to be?

Self-confident on my own time
Self-conscious on others
A typical teen thatís lost who she is
Who has lost her own identity.

5 years of false happiness
15 of displeasure
What will the next 10 be?
What must I make of myself?
What will I be?
Who am I?
What do you want me to be?
What do I want to be?

What do I want to be?
Who do you want me to be?
The two questions I ask myself
The two questions I ask you, with no words.

5 years of false happiness
15 of displeasure
What will the next 10 be?
What must I make of myself?
What will I be?
Who am I?
What do you want me to be?

You donít know me as I am.
You know me as another tag-along you.
I donít fit in your category.
I donít fit in my category.

5 years of false happiness
15 of displeasure
What will the next 10 be?
What must I make of myself?
Who will I be?
Who am I?
What do you want me to be?

Iím taken over by othersí souls
They corrupt me like an evil sin I have done.
I canít let go of corruption.
I canít, in fear of your rejection.


5 years of false happiness
15 of displeasure
What will the next 10 be?
What must I make of myself?
Who will I be?
Who am I?
What do you want me to be?

Time rolls on,
Yet, I still ask the same questions
Who am I?
What do you want me to be?
Who am I?
Who do I want to be?

Welcome to Passions Sheila!

Wow! An incredibe first post so full of questions!  I think the best question Sheila, is who or what do "you" want to be?  Listen to your heart, and worry not what others perceive.  Be unique, and stay strong  

Keep writing ... the answers will come in time (check your e-mail for a special message)

Best wishes,
/Kit

Welocome to Passions..this is a great poem, you sound just like me, everyone's made up of others..and finding your identity, is something I'm on the way to do...soon you will too don't worry  

"Controlling my feelings for too long....
And forcing our darkest souls to unfold...
And pushing us into self-destruction...."
