Hiding behind a front

A 'happy' life

All dressed the same

Acting the same

Longing to break free

From societies ties

Dictates what to do

How to be

Desperate to be yourself

Feeling so isolated

But just like so many others

Behind the false smiles

Trapped behind bars

A life of imprisonment

Because freedom says

"Be like them"

"Dress the same"

"Talk the same"

"Act the same"

"Be the same"

How similar we are

Wanting to be completely different

Dieing to live

Living to die

Find yourself

I can't find you

Just be yourself

Who are you?
