    You look as if you know me
    Trying to uncover…who I am
    But it’s all just a mystery for you
    As you try…
    Asking around like I don’t get the message
    Who is a friend seems to let you down
    But I wont tell…just laugh and move on
    So why worry…
    Claiming friend
    Claiming sister
    Claiming brother
    Showing love when you only seeking
    For unanswered questions
    In a hush of a whisper….
    I am who I am….
    You look as if you know me….
    But you don’t…
    Hiding and watching thinking
    You can see….
    I am who I am to be
    Some think this and some think that
    But think what you like…
    Because I am….
    Drama free
    You look as if you know me….
    You can’t get close…but you try
    With lies and betrayal…playing a game
    What a shame….
    Because I am not to blame
    Watching me like a hunter going for prey..
    Up in mine
    When you need to be handling yours
    Its no connection..never will be
    You don’t know me…
    Stop pretending.
    Mental mind twist
    Get you all the time
    Royal lines…disregarded…
    Because you don’t move me…
    In a hush of a whisper….
    I am who I am….
    TO
    BE!!!!!

    It takes much to really know a person, this is true. You make a point with what you say, there are many, many layers to what makes up a total person.
