I’m learning to be me
Such a strange concept
How do you learn to be yourself?
Aren’t you inherently yourself?
Have you not been yourself since birth?
We have been molded and prodded into who we are
We have learned that everything from our past has made us
We have learned that society will see you a certain way
Regardless of who you “claim” to be
I am learning to be me
Hopefully, you are learning to be you
Your “authentic” true self
The one you cherish
The one who looks directly at you in the mirror
The one who knows all your innermost thoughts and desires
You and I
We are learning to become our truest self
In hopes that one day
It doesn’t matter who we are
It doesn’t matter who thinks they know us best
It doesn’t matter what society claims us as
We are just
