Poem: what am I supposed to be?

What am I supposed to be?

Will I ever be what I’m mean to be?

Gripped by fear and anxiety,

Buzzing around like an excited bee,

Will I ever be accepted by society?

Probably not, I think that’s the key,

Realising that most others choose a life not for me,

I need to be OK with just being me,

Awkward and weird for all to see,

And stepping forward without certainty.

Somehow I feel I really know me,

Who I am, what I need, who I want to be,

But up until now, I’ve not found a way to stay happy,

Going through highs and lows, still not feeling free.

I sit here writing this,

Wishing for a future of bliss,

With a past behind me I don’t miss,

And a girl beside me for me to kiss.

What am I supposed to be?

What is gonna become of me?

Can anyone out there, help me, please?

I feel like I’m falling,

Maybe the canopy of those trees,

Will catch me.

    I loved these lines! It’s scary when you realize that perhaps you’re not meant to travel the same path as everyone else, but it’s really important to find that courage to go forth and forge your own path!
