Who I Am


I'm awkward,

I'm silent,

I don't try to get to know others'

and when I try to fake my emotions,

some of my friends don't buy it.

I really wear my emotions on my sleeves,

some people try to get near me,

but I don't feel at ease.

I know that I shouldn't think this way,

or feel uneasy,

but sometimes

I push MYSELF away.
