Who am I?

Who was I? 

Before the anxiety consumed me..
Who did I love? 

Who did I want to be? 

When did I decide to give up on me? 

 

I complan about the world

always telling me I'm not good enough, 

but honestly,

it's me. 

 

I am, and always will be, 

my own worst enemy. 

 

I need to stop trying. 

I need to care less. 

Caring too much 

has made me reckless. 

 

I don't know who I am. 

Maybe I never did. 

But I've never cared to know anything, 

as much as this.
