Who Am I?

 

00FD1170-8C55-4FBD-9449-8B2F3BF73CE7I struggle with the question “who am I?”

The simple answer is “I am me”

But even as I spread my wings to fly

I feel the tightened noose of who I am supposed to be

I yearn to sever those strings and be happy

My definition of success — a burdensome weight

Ingrained expectations are so heavy to carry

Especially, when in my own mind, those expectations originate.
