Who Am I
by: Shawnie Mulligan

How do I know who I am
I want a life, a dream, a goal a reason
I want to be something, someone
But what who am I
How can I know
I've been lost, hidden, buried
Afraid to speak, afraid to express
I've been a prisoner of my fears
To afraid to do anything
And food
Always my excuse always my crutch
To scared, to weak , to afraid
Afraid of what...
Afraid of who I am
How can I know who I am
I've been dead
I don't know who I am, how can I
But I can find out
I can take risks
Find my loves, my hates, my soul
Create a life; dig out out has been buried
Dig out the parts of me that have been afraid
And show the world who I am
Some may laugh
Some may criticize
But that's me, that's who I am
And as long as I like me
That's all that matters
