I am stubborn
I am opinionated
I am depressed
I am emotionless
I am too emotional
I am self-conscious
I am awkward
I am hotheaded
I am weak
I am unenthusiastic
I am childish
I am dramatic
I am frugal
I am foolish
I am dim-witted
I am hopelessly unrealistic
I am inappropriate
I am mean spirited
I am paranoid
I am a procrastinator
I am rebellious
I am shy
I am wrong
Put away your golden mask
And I will tear away mine.
We are naked behind our emotional walls
Life’s vile games have striped us of ourselves.
What’s the meaning of life?
The meaning of life is figuring out the meaning.
Life’s a paradox.
So let’s just close our eyes to the others.
Forget those who aren’t me
And dream those dreams
Where we are truly,
Depressingly,
Happy.
I am real.
