Thats Where You Will Find Me

Everything I'm Not, Made Me Everything I Am
Everything i am made me who i am not

Who am i
i dont know

my true self
its hard to find with all stuff i added for others

i blow up on innocent people when i am mad
i am protective of others

while i let others walk all over me
i would die for most of ,if not all, of my friends

i am different
i dont know who i am yet

but i dont have to know
I know the person that you see

i havent been my true self in a long time
my self is unknown to others

myself is unknown to me
when i look in the mirror and look in my eyes

i see the regret
the pain from the past

the wall i built up
that now even i cant tear down

the friendships that have been ripped at the seams
and myself that is hidden

under the fake
under you

you find me
