    Suppressed Myself For Too Long

    I always felt like I was someone else and so I tried to be that person.  I was someone I didn't know around my friends, even the ones I tried to be myself with.  I either didn't talk or talked too much. I tried to be myself, but I wasn't sure who that was, so I made it...

    I don't know who I really am. I feel as if I have no real identity. If someone was ever to ask me who I am, I would have no answer.
