A Facade

All I see is a facade, a mask lies
A cheating smile, plastic frame of mind
The thought of who I am, scattered like flies
A mixture of hundreds of people combined

I’m lost, I don't know myself anymore
For I have been hiding for far too long 
I stare deep into my heart, mind, my core
Do I know myself, perhaps someone strong

Acting, I managed to create someone
A new person, perhaps a better half 
It was a gift, become my own loved-one 
Because now, I have an easier laugh

Don’t you change while you grow, grow while you change
Embracing myself, life won’t seem as strange

The author's comments:

When I wrote this, I was confused about who I was. It's a question I ask myself a lot actually. Finally, I decided to put it down into some words. I hope whoever is reading this, maybe grasps themselves a little more, or even has an easier laugh.
