    In my head there are so many confused thoughts
    I dont even know where to begin
    Am I competitive, passive, or agressive
    Is it important for me to win?
    I don't know I dont know
    But Im constantly racking my brain
    It hurts so much to not know myself
    Can you teach me so I can relieve the pain?
    Am I scared or am I brave
    Can I stand by myself and fight?
    Am I outgoing or am I shy
    Can I tell between wrong and right?
    I dont know, ****, I don't know
    Im always asking myself
    Aint sure I can make it alone
    Or if I have a God to ask for help
    Who am I?
    Who am I?
    Is it me who wants to know
    I might never find the answer
    Until its time for me to go

    u are who u are and inside who u to be
    a heart of love
    a mind of wisdom
    a body of soul
    u define self in the mirror
    the poetic hand
    the writer of wordz
    what u truely seek u already know
    it's da message in ya flow
    inside deep the mirror of truth
    is the real answer to all ya question
    look deep it's their only there u shall
    fine the answers to all

    i don't know who you are,
    bcuz i don't wanna judge.
    and say you're one thing,
    that you're the complete opposite of.
    see you so mixed up,
    that you don't know what to feel.
    and i'm diggin yo flow,
    cuz what you're saying is so real.
    others may not understand you,
    or may not even give a care in the world.
    but i'll give my little input,
    black or white--boy or girl.
    you gotta be something,
    cuz God ain't make no trash.
    and yes you can get some help from him,
    all you gotta do is ask.
    see now i'm getting to into this,
    it's time for me to go.
    i done wrote all of this,
    just to say I LOVE YO FLOW!!!

    This is for you, Kori :grouphug:

    I was in this place many self evolutions ago. What got me through it was when I stopped trying to be someone or form myself and just let the real me come out. I also had to keep plunging forward into self-discovery, even though I was afraid. Maybe free writing, ie writing/journaling whatever comes into your head would be good for you. At the very least, it'll get a lot of stuff out of your head where it's rattling around.

    Peace and luck and love to you on your special journey.

    If you know who you are, that means you aren't evolving into what you can become, you are stuck in a time where you ceased to grow.

    You should always learn something new about you, that way, you know that you are.

    Peace.

    If I may add, this is a nice piece, sorry for taking up more space.

    Keep growing, keep searching.

    Peace.
