Feeling that you just can't be you, that you have to be someone else to find happiness.

I’m constantly looked past

Unless I’m what everyone wants to see

Love will escape my grasp and I’ll come in last

I’ve become too ashamed to be me…


Maybe if I’m molded into perfection

Someone will take a bit of notice

They’ll show me that loving affection

And see that inside I’m a white lotus


I can wish all that I want to

That someone will want me the way that I am

But I’ll only end up feeling blue

And still no one will give a damn


Do I really have to change to please?

Is it really a fantasy to just be accepted?

The ones before were only but a tease

I’m so tired of being rejected…
