We’re all nothing but walking paradoxes, and I love it!

Why do I always fight myself

Preventing myself from being myself

I’m still in my own body

But at the same time I’m somebody else

I may not like me

But I’m still me 

But know matter how many times

I must tell myself this

I will always be someone other than myself

Before I found poetry, this is how I felt and how many teens of today feel.
