Every outfit I wear
Every gesture I make
Every word that I say
Every step that I take..

Are these things truly me?
Do I portray who I am?
Or am I giving in to society's
"Be Yourself" scam?

What others think shouldn't matter
I should be me to the bone
Yet it does, and I know
I can't do this alone.

The author's comments:

I wrote this awhile ago, when I was feeling incredibly insecure and lost in myself. I wasn't sure if I knew who I really was or if I was mirroring who I wanted to be.
