My Emotions

by a young woman, age 17

I seem to be really confused
But really I’m just trying to express how I feel inside

I seem to be a different person most of the time
But really I’m trying to find my true self inside of me

I seem to be all over the place
But really I’m trying to find the reality of everything in life

I seem to be angry a lot
But really I’m a person trying to work out problems 

I seem to be sad and depressed
But really I’m trying to express how I’m feeling on things

I seem to be mixed emotions all the time
But really I just want very few emotions at a time

I seem to be afraid and scared a lot
But really I want to conquer my fears in life

I seem to be happy
But really I’m showing so people stop bothering me
     until I come out to become my true self
