Who am I?

Who am I? 

Who am I,
Does anybody know?
Do I hit every bump, or go with that flow?

Do I really like this,
If I’m more into that?
Can I say that im lost,
If I know where I’m at?

Should I say that it’s black,
When I know that it’s white?
Or risk everything I have,
To say what is right

Should I cry in the dark,
And keep it to myself?
Or do I reach out to someone,
And get some help?

Do I say that I love you,
When I don’t really do?
Or move onto him,
And completely forget you?

Do I know who I am,
And know what to do?
If I said that I did,
It would be untrue
