Hyding from Jekyll

There are multiple me’s, all make me proud
Which one is dominant, I can’t say very loud

My life is a stage, I’m so grateful
If done well, ever so tasteful 

A stage to try, fail and try again
To laugh and cry, oh what then

I’m not sick
I’m alive and learning me
Who I can be, how to be free
Why hyde from Jekyll?

I want to know Hyde, I wish he would come out
Moods, events, places and people each change me
I’m not one but many, my god I could shout
I see my future – why hyde from Jekyll
