The Real Me


No one knows the real me.

I am a nobody disguised as a somebody.

Filling my life with sports and good grades.

I feel lost, insecure, and sometimes depressed.

Always trying to impress, full of stress,

can't really express, all the problems i should confess.

That's just me having bad finesse.

No one knows the real me.

I am "popular", or well known but still feel so alone.

I have many "friends", or so i think.

We don't hang out very much anymore.

I would be so excited, if we were all reunited,

but i feel really spited, because i am rarely invited.

In me, a flame of loneliness is ignited.

No one knows the real me.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still happy just occasionally unhappy.

I have a family, good health, and good life.

I look forward to what the future brings.

Trying to intertwine all these dreams of mine,

I need more time, trying to redefine this life of mine.

My family, "friends", and coaches think I'm fine.

But after all,

No one knows the real me
