Can You Tell Me Why?

By , Englewood, NJ
Dear God,
I feel so lost. I don’t know where I belong or who I am. I never feel at home no matter what I do. I’ve been trying so hard just to fit in that I don’t even recognize myself anymore. Nobody knows who I really am. They just know the person I become when I’m around them. I have so many different – “personas,” with my different groups of friends.

Can You Tell Me Why?

Can you tell me why you made me this way?

Can you tell me why I try so hard to please others even though I am shown no appreciation?

Can you tell me why i feel like I have nothing at all even though I have so much?

Can you just

Please

Tell me why?!
