Catch me, if you can by Fotoula Reynolds

In the time of tomorrow
Past images of self, vanish
Current identity erased
My existence dies

The transformation is not
A façade, re-inventing myself
Scares the shit out of me
I only just found who I am
Now through private despair
I lose myself again

If protecting my own life
Means stripping me bare
And throwing away the old
For a new then
I choose a life at sea

Who am I now?
I say, a free spirit
An unconventional
