Be me

 

 

 

Just be you, I'm told, you'll be loved, I'm told.

These tiny agonizing fairy tales are getting a bit too old...

I try being me, a kind, generous and caring guy..

All I get is a lot of judgemental glaring...

My pulse is flaring up, and my heart ablaze, while my mind is a neverending maze..

 

The fire rages, my heart in cages, and my bad wages, are not helping.

I just keep hoping, hoping that one day, I could be happy with someone.

"Just be you"

If only I knew...

I've been me from the beginning, I try, I've tried so many times, just being me, but who is that supposed to be.

Why is being me only giving me problems?

Have I done something to deserve this?

She's neither mine nor his.

Being me never helped, only in lowering my hopes, and my dreams.

Who's the girl of your dreams?
Buddy I wish I could answer, here's the thing, I'm tired of being, just me, if it gets me nowhere, why be there.

You know they say "You can't have a nightmare if you never dream"

What they didn't say, If you don't dream, you can't have any good dreams either.

I'm told that I'm a fighter, but what's worth fighting for, if it does not exist.

I wish I could keep living in ignorance and blizz.

I care, I try, I've given so many tries..

 I just want good memories.

Alone, and afraid, why is it that I can't be caring, why is that so bad.

I wish I could be glad, to introduce myself.

But I know most will hate me.

I don't know if I am who I want to be.

Is this the end, should stop trying, Should I just give up.

Am I not supposed to be, me....
