Sometimes I disappear for days

And not even I know where I am.

I pretend to trust

But in reality, I don’t trust anyone.

The lies, they slip off my tongue so easily now.

And it’s frightening

That sometimes,

Even I don’t know the truth.


I push those I care for away

For fear they'll see the monster within.

My true colors

Are far from black and white.

I take advantage of those who help me,

And patience

Is a virtue I don’t have.


It’s hard to admit that I’m imperfect,

That I have flaws and faults.

But isn’t it hard for everyone?

I run from the painful truth of what I represent

And I try every day to take the easy way out.

But where has that gotten me?

And what have I become because of it?
