Nothing is Wrong.

For Years I played pretend

Hiding who I wasn't

Forgetting who I was

Like when you wait for something to come, and then it doesn't

 

I lied to my friends

I lied to myself

Lie on top of lie

Wishing I was someone else

 

Now its all over

Suddenly I see

There is nothing wrong with who I am

Nothing wrong with me

 

Slowly, I dug myself out of those lies

And unwrapped all my secrets

So much self-inflicted harm

I have decided not to need it

 

All is bright

All is clear

And when they tell me I’m no good

I don't even hear.
