What I thought would make me free

Was what has chained me

Dragging me down

Unable to make a sound

I can only follow

Forget who I am and be shallow

Play this game of pretend

Everyone I have to befriend.

Become someone I am not

Forgetting myself until I rot

Killing myself

Burying my old self

Creating a new identity

A shallow personality

Always feeling unwell

Suffocated, with no one to tell

I can only endure

And be injured

Accept it all

Until I fall.
