So many years
Trying to live as someone other than who I am

Because I didn’t know

I didn’t know I wasn’t who everyone told me I was
(Or didn’t)
Who else was I supposed to know to be?
When the only language you hear (know)
Doesn’t fit
Collecting a piece here
Catching a glimmer there
And finally taking a leap
To see what I could find
(It wasn’t where I was)

And you were there
Wherever it is I am
You were always there
Wherever I wasn’t ready to be
But getting there
Where when I pinch myself I can feel it

Maybe I’ll need to leap again
Ask the questions of becoming
Off the path (another one)
And you’ll be there

Won’t you?
