I'm trying to find
What I have lost
If I have even lost anything
I'm searching for answers
To questions I have
If they can be answered
I'm trying to fit into life
To be what everyone want's me to be
But there's not enough room to fit
I'm trying to color my personality
But I'm restricted to two colors
So I am coloring in black and white
I'm trying to take a picture
To capture the moment
But I have no film
I'm trying to erase my mistakes
Ones I want fixed
But I wrote in pen
I'm trying to be who I am
But others want me to be them
Made in their image
But that's not who I am
I am me
Not you
So you go be you
And I will be me
If I was how you want me to be
I would not be me
I would be you
And I certainly do not want
To be you
