Just look under the surface

God, who is this person I've become
Where is that one everyone used to know
I've changed so much on the outside
But on the inside I'm still the same.
Yet they don't know that, they don't
Take the time to look below the surface.

This is great by connecting to the audience. Like Charlotte Bog said, everyone feels like that sometimes, some more than others.

It starts off very personal in the first line, then it loses its flow. Some imagery would really make this memorable.

One tiny grammar mistake. Should be "that one everyone USED to know".

This was enjoyable. :) Keep writing.
