Trying to be a Sonnet

I’m lacking in some authenticity
Trying my best to be what I must be
I tell you this not wishing your pity
Explanation for the discord you see

Free spirit forced into confining mould
Trying to conform be the hidden thumb
You’re not looking particularly sold
But I know that sticking out would be dumb

It draws attention and presents questions
Not in search to attract a judging eye
I’m open to possible suggestions
How I succeed to partially comply

Without losing the essence of my soul
Nor dying in this box under control
