    I am a person, sometimes,
    with hopes and dreams and fears.
    I am a person, sometimes,
    made of blood and sweat and tears.
    I am a person, sometimes,
    who doesn't want a lot.
    I am a person sometimes,
    but mostly I am not.

    I am a monster, sometimes,
    who has escaped her cage.
    I am a monster, sometimes,
    with claws and teeth and rage.
    I am a monster, sometimes,
    filled with anger, hate, and rot.
    I am a monster, sometimes,
    but mostly I am not.

    I am a shadow, sometimes,
    writhing on the wall.
    I am a shadow, sometimes,
    I'm hardly here at all.
    I am a shadow, sometimes,
    so easily forgot...
    I am a shadow, sometimes,
    but mostly I am not.

    I am an angel, sometimes,
    made of joy and peace and love.
    I am an angel, sometimes,
    a gift from up above.
    I am an angel, sometimes,
    and see the things I've wrought...
    I am an angel, sometimes,
    but mostly I am not.

    I am a person, sometimes,
    and I am deeply flawed.
    I am a person, sometimes,
    not a hero or a god.
    I am a person, sometimes,
    with my feelings nearly shot.
    Yet monster, shadow, angel...
    those things I am not.
