I struggle with perception
I can’t tell what’s false and what’s true
But then again I’ve never had a clue
All along you were just a conception
Someone I created
Someone I needed
To prove myself to
Something I could never do
Sometimes you had the face of others
Of my sisters and brothers
Of my fathers and mothers

At first you were my guide
Teaching me things about myself I never knew
I became less scared and didn’t hide
But as I grew, so did you
Eventually I stopped and you didn’t
And you could do what I couldn’t
You pushed on and I fell behind
Never feeling like I was enough
I couldn’t be that tough
At least not in my mind

But then again I struggle
Struggle with perception
Perception of reality
