It’s hard to know who you really are
We are constantly changing
For a woman I think this is more so
A lifetime of change
A man only changes when he is kicked
When something so drastic hits him in the face
Childhood gives us what we will be
Alone is what shaped me
It’s a curse to remember everything
The taking away of things
The self sufficiency
The nights left with my nan
The stories not told
A jealous elder sister
I should have been the girl
That was her message to me
I’m far more suited for that
