All That I Am

 

I’ve tried to give you all that I am

But how can I give what I don’t have?

I cannot give of what I am not

Of all that you wish me to be.

 

I wish I could be the person you see,

From behind your soft green eyes.

But all that I am is hidden beneath

This dark shroud that is my life.

 

Still, that’s not all that I am

Because I am not mine to give.

I’ve given it all away before,

Now it’s gone, no longer my own.

hmmm.so you have given all of you away before so you do not have you anymore... Ahhh, hope you build more of you up.. what is YOU, is the only thing you can rely on..

Though I do understand what you are saying.. all the best.
