Who decided who I was?


Who decided who I was,

It certainly wasn’t me.

My parents gave me this name,

They decided who I'd be.


Who decided who I was,

Who gave me this body,

A brain with intermittent function,

Really its just shoddy.


Who decided who I was,

Gave me a brain that over thinks,

Doubting everything around me,

Really that just stinks.


Did you decide who I was,

Is it you that gave me purpose,

If you know my role in life, I implore you,

Please, just let it surface.


Can I decide who I am?

Find my own path,

There are things about myself I know I cannot change,

But I thought I'd ask.


I know the answer to these questions,

But I ask them anyway,

Hoping that for someone reason they change,

And you say what I want you to say.


But I cannot decide who I am?

The decisions are made before birth,

Decisions no one can control,

Decide my place on this earth.


I cannot decide who I am,

The decisions were yours to make,

So I ask you all Mighty God,

Is it possible, you made a mistake?
