"Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

What’s really me?
People around me seem to have a grasp
At who they really are on the inside.
Yet, when I try to imagine who I am...
I am lost.
There is no “me”
In the kind of way others can find themselves.
Is it because I have forgotten who I am?
Lost within all of the walls I have built up
To protect myself from the reality?
Or, did I in fact...
Never really know what makes me...

I can understand the confusion of trying to find out who you are. I found its best to take some time in a quit space and reflex a little and talk to people you love and trust. I also try to remember everyone is growing and changing everyday so we are never done finding ourselves especially in the teen years.
