I'm not always me

And it's not for lack of trying

How am I supposed to be me

If I don't know who I am

How can I be myself

When I've been working so hard to not be

How can anyone possibly like me for who I am

How can they like who I am

If I'm not sure who that is

How much of what I say is real

And how much is fake

Does anyone know

Or am I just lost

And alone

In my head
