Fear is a choice, danger is real, but fear is a choice.

I have one personality 

Said no one ever

Its a choice of reality 

That says you can do better

The fact we can fake it so well

Is scarier than it seems 

The thought anyone could be anything

Seems like a dream

A nightmare in fact

That makes no sense 

Till your outer shell cracks

So how many layers do you have

Ten, or Twenty

It's all pretty bad

The life you lead should be all the same

Yet you change it around

Through hurt and fame

Take my advice or don't

In the end, you'll find

You chose who you are 

Even if it's hard to decide

It's not that hard to say

Find your reality 

Not your thousandth personality

We change how we act so much that it hurts us. Find who you are and stick with it because its definitely better than something fake.

When even the scars formed by your mistakes
are you own constellations?"

This got me thinking! There are so many points raised by this poem. I think it's not entirely possible to be the same person all the time, even if you know who you are in private. It takes a lot of self-awareness and courage to even try to narrow down your personalities to 2 or 3. Thanks for this poem!
