Who am I ? by Allison Hernandez
Who was I, just a kid with a big imaginary dream
Who enjoyed to go play at the park and eat chocolate ice cream
Who was I a little girl who wanted to grow up so bad and face the big cruel world by herself
Who thought that the world was just made up of princesses, fairies and elves
Who was I a 13 year old in middle school who wanted to be cool and popular
But who everyone always saw an outsider or foreigner
Who was I a girl who never understood her wrongdoings and who always made mistakes as she grew up
Who always had ideas but at the end she just gave them up
Who was I a lost girl who just wanted to grow up and enjoy life
Who wanted to find someone who loved her and made her a wife
Who am I now? A lost soul who can’t find herself in this world
Who can’t describe herself with any word
Am I kind? Sweet? Smart? Stupid? Or useless?
Who am I? I don’t want to grow up anymore
I am afraid to face the world by myself
Oh don’t we all want to end oneself?
Can I make it? Will I make it?
Can’t find me in this place, so I take a look at my face in the mirror which lies to me
Every time I ask myself, will I pick up my pace?
Who am I? What’s my persona and where can I find it
I want to dream, I want to fly, to a paradise where I won’t cry
I am growing up, I can’t give up
I have to try, no I won’t die. I am stronger now, I will show you who I will be
There won’t be no more tears in my eyes, no more wondering Who am I?
