A heady convolution of emotions -if that makes sense. Have read this poem several times and wanted to get to know it better before commenting. ....'tie the noose but I'll climb the rope' is a line which will always be memorable, as, although I'm maybe being too literal in my interpretation, it's about prevailing in spite of the cliff edge desperation people often feel. And that line 'I'm not who I'm supposed to be could a universal scream to be someone else other than live in existential torment... Well, that's my rather pretentious understanding of things. Good poem.
