Thats All You Are

People are always telling me
You are who you are
and thats all you are.

But I want more then what I am
I can be brilent and smart
witty and fun
give me a fishing pole
and I'll be your fishin buddy.

I know people and they know me.......
Or do they really know me?
I hide behind what others want
me to be.

These masks of mine need to be taken off
but I'm afraid of what the world will say
I'm not pretty enough
and i'll never be good enough
no matter what i do
it will never b enough.

People are always telling me
you are who you are
and thats all you will ever be.....
But I want more.

I wanna look in the mirror
and like what I see for once,
I just want it all.

I like this poem, it is the heart of insecurity. About being one's self without worry of not being accepted. I know I have been there more than once:)

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
