A Borderline Personality Conflict

Borderline personality
Yet borderline nobody
Borderline strong
Yet borderline about to crack
Borderline smiling
Yet borderline crying
What is this state
That causes self-hate?

Eyes twinkling with joy
Or wet with had-enoughs
Lips curved in smile
Or hateful had-it grimace
Body lay relaxed
Or simply playing dead
What is this state
That causes such confusion?

Be yourself they say
But I don’t know who I am
