Who I Am

from Polaris by Akash Vincent



I’m changing mask after mask
All I feel at home with
is my skin, as far from the celebrated
it may seem to be
I am young, it’s a long way to go
before I have weathered the storms
To see the fruit that my own heart bears for me

Melodies and words
On a paper could you tell me who I am?
I'll send off these songs
To the world as bottled letters
But do they speak for me?

There are so many faces in frames
from which I may choose to be
So many lives
from which I may choose to lead
I will keep myself
from getting lost
If I remember what my chase is all about
It's not to be for them
But to find out who I am

It's only now that my hands
know to tell the anatomy of me
from the words that made their way in ink in front of me
It's time and time again
I find myself realizing I
cannot judge my own book
by the chapters unfolded to me

So my heart, you need to speak to me
We need to be in this together you see
Show me what hopes you are made up of
And show me what scars you need to heal of
And I will find for you
a life you may find redemption through
Where I will always remember
Where I will always remember
Yes I will always remember
That it's not to be for them
But to find out who I am
