All You See is Potential

How do I separate myself from what I think I should be?
How do I become what I was meant to be?
I have so many talents, but do any come from me?
Is there a single thing I do that’s truly part of me?
Or shall I start again from scratch and build a future me?
Will I leave this piece of time with something real to keep?
Or is this all just pantomime? Do I run too fast and deep?
Am I really bound to find a place in life for me?
Or is this just another false hope? Never meant to be.
