I Was Never That Person – Written Wednesday 1st November 2006 (Aged 31)

I Was Never That Person

i was never the person
that they made me out to be
and accepting that,
i was not like that with everybody
remained just out of reach

i was never the person
they needed me to be
an answer for their past
why loneliness feels so cold
why the pain had to last
i cannot explain why
parents sometimes let you down
they stay in silence,
or choose to not stick around

i was never the person
they needed me to be
hung up by labels of the past
a need to be set free
a feeling that needs to change
a chance to pick up the future

i was never the person,
they made me out to be
