That's not me"
The only way to find myself, is to shed myself entirely.
Remove myself from everything I have ever known. For over the course of my life to date, I have moulded myself in ways that I barely recognise. The performance has now become so second nature, so surreal. I know I am not myself here.
Not how they know me.
They don't know me.
And while I continue to walk these same streets and talk to the same people, the performance will stay the same.
Who am I if you take all of this away? If you remove me from the same environment I have lived in for over 20 years - the props, the characters, the set, the same tired old script.
I am deconstructing my constructed self.

I'll be gone"
