I'll Forget Who You Want Me To Be

I’ve always hated the saying “Don’t forget who you are”, it used to fill my gut with anger. It implied that everybody else knew me better than I knew myself, that they knew the “real” me and I didn’t. The implication is that change is bad, but my life is a constant journey, every day I am not the same person I was yesterday. I am no longer the little girl my family wants me to be nor am I the ‘nerd’ my peers expect me to be, I am just me in all my ever changing forms.                                                                                


                                                                                                    

"Don't forget who you are" 

stop spewing lies 

their hot bullets

from your mouth

from the barrel of the gun


I can almost feel it

the regret on your tongue

your anger wounding me

without a word

just a stare


Maybe you’re afraid

afraid of the truth

afraid it will burn

afraid it will shatter glass

break your fantasies


Wipe your tears

I won’t forget who I am

only who you want me to be

the girl you knew yesterday

isn’t the woman you see today

I am an incoming senior at MAST Academy, a writer, and an activist. Besides binge watching Netflix shows and anime, I try to make my writing a catalyst for change and hope to continue helping others through my volunteer work.
