To be who you are

Is possible to be who you are when the whole world is against you?

Does it matter if you know who you are if the ones you cherish will only reject you

To be who you are is to experience pain

You can not change who you are, who would you be?

A shell of a person who would become bitter and angry

To be who you are is painful

To open yourself up to the very real possibility of your loved ones hating you

Is it worth it?

To be true to yourself and stop pretending?

To take off your mask and let the world see you for who you are?

What does it profit a person to gain the whole world but lose thier soul?

 

Why should I be who I am?

Why not contine to be fake and hide?

To be human is to be rejected

To be who you are is hard

It is hard and painful and not for the weak of heart

Me, Im not sure I can ever be myself completley 

 

To be who I am is to be disowned

But you dear child, you have a chance

To be who you are for the whole word to see

 Take this oppertunity and run with it

Do not be dismayed there is hope for you

You can be who you are

To be yourself is to be human
