all i ever wanted to do
was be nice to you

but i find myself
needlessly explaining myself

and changing myself
to catch up to you

each time
i reach for my pen
i flinch

each time
i think about my sadness
i hide

each time
i try to be
the me i thought you liked
i fear

and search for a me
more acceptable
in your eyes

you are so wise
to what i'm not

how can i learn
to be who i am

and still make you smile?
