Finally Me

Walking the streets thinking I’m free

When reality is I’m locked away in myface

And I don’t even know the name

Sometimes the words that I say don’t feel like mine

Honestly, I wish that I could turn back time

I wish I didn’t live my life as such a lie

Always hiding what I feel inside

Always ignoring what I was crying for

Always feeling like if I were a machine, I’d pull the cord

Although this isn’t my first time in a cell

It’s the first time I don’t feel like I’m in hell

I feel real, like I am someone

Not just a body or a face

When I look in the mirror now I say my name

And it doesn’t seem fake

Although I’m not walking the streets

I feel free, I feel like me

And that my dreams aren’t just dreams

They can actually be achieved
