Not Who I am

You say you know Who I am inside You think I'm a monster because of how I act Your words are like fire they burn me and they heal me of what the darkest part of me tries to do I try to prove myself yet each time I'm burned or your hurt and your eyes they hurt worse than any words could I am not a monster but how can I prove myself to someone like you who see me at my darkest time and when I'm at the top of the world doing good for others You avoid me and that is what makes me fall You say you know me Who I am inside but all you see is that monster Not who I am
