Defining Me

I sit on my own,
Away from the rest,
Absorbed in my silence,
As a form of defense.

Sometimes I'm quiet,
Mostly I'm shy.
Both of these attributes
Prevents me to fly.

And this form or reality,
Gives me no sense of normality-
So if you ask me I'd smile
Or maybe I'd laugh,
But this feeling inside 
Hurts like I've been cut in half.

But no matter how much I try,
I know I won't change.
Because in the end-
I'd be running from myself.
