Why Can't I?

Why can't I be me? 

Can't I live the life I want to?

Or do I have to be told to?

Always hiding my thoughts and feelings.

Because I can't be so revealing.


Why is it only me?

I bet other people can get things as a relief.

But I cannot get things because of my beliefs.

    It’s not only you sadly, finding that ability to completely be you isn’t as easy as you may think.
    We all have to adapt our persona’s for our environment, work, children, friends, family etc
    I do feel your pain though, I would love to be as open in real life as I am on here.
    A throoght provoking writing, keeping putting your feelings on paper, at the very least you can be you on here.
    Thank you for sharing.
