Being truly unique is very rare.
All that makes me who I am, is merely parts of you that I have taken for my own. All that I know is what I have been told. All that I know is made up of what I've seen others do.

What makes others beautiful, I have stolen for myself and tried to make it mine. I have taken what is pretty and made it hideous. My personality is a rotting abomination of all of yours.

My character is defined by who I'm surrounded by. Everyone can see a bit of themselves in me, for that is all that I am, I am not my own person. I am merely a copy cat.

"I take bits and pieces of others personalities to form my own."
