I tried to be me
But it didn't seem to work
And being someone else
Seems so much worse

I give up most days
And it spirals down
People fall apart around me
But I hit the ground first

I long to be someone else
But why
All this emotional stuff
No need to be rehearsed

The journey long forgotten
The now has long been rotten
Give me something to hold on to
But not your face
Cause you might need that

The last lines were very humors, I'm not sure if that was intended or not, but it gave the poem a more... honest/sarcastic feel.
I really like the poem and can relate quite a bit to several stanzas.
