Unhappy Me

You're always wrong at first

You're wrong and it's easy

To be right is learned

To stay right is slippery


My choices are wrong, mistakes are bound

So I follow the rules, the laws and make sure to be precise

I'm only comfortable when I'm the only one around

Cause I tried with people and I always ended up criticised

I learned to hide the real me,

And play the me they want to see


Sometimes I feel like I'm pretending

A hypocrite, my actions I regret

A different me for everybody

A different me instead


I try to stay happy, but these criticisms get to me

Deep in thoughts I'm drowning, so I try to breathe

But it isn't breathing really

More like inhaling, I'm drowning still

For I can't be me, 

Till I am the me I want to be

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
