I'm not crazy nor am I shy
I'm just insecure and ungrateful
I'm not living in my own world
nor am I giving little thought to things
I'm simply trying to hide my low self esteem from the world
I'm not strong nor am I intelligent
I'm simply good at hiding things and very observant
I'm not the nicest person you've ever met
I'm just excellent at portraying an image
that is accepted by society
Most times I don't show my true colours
I just show the personality that I think you think is best for me
Just to get a couple of thumbs pointed up
and a fake smile from you in order to increase my confidence
