Sometimes I pretend I was someone else
To escape this reality for a while.
I could be an astronaut
Or an actress playing these parts.
I could be the hero
Or the villain
The one saving the dragon
Or the dragon itself.
I pretend, to keep sane
“Why aren’t you going to the ball?”
“I don’t want to wear something I hate
Just to impress people I don’t like.”
Yes, I’m ditching the ball.
I walked the same road that others took
They were all moving too fast
I picked up my pace and I stumbled
No one helped or extended a hand
I was low
And so I decided
To take my own step
My own pace
My own time
Don’t ever let go
If dreams were made to last forever
Let this one go on
Eyes of blue that penetrate the very core of your soul
A smile that intensifies each time you see it
And my heart flutters like butterflies on first flight
That voice, angelic and soft and calm
Makes you wonder if he’s real or just a dream within a dream
I could never fathom how someone this real, could be unreal all at the same time
I wondered who I am
If I’m defined as to who I’ll be
Or who I really am
Do they see?
See the real me?
Or do they judge me by the peers that I am with
I feel misunderstood often
I even misunderstand myself
I need to find myself
And they need to stop labelling me
Walk on air
Care for no one but yourself
This is about you and you alone
Take care of your own
If my life was a movie
Would him and I end up happy?
I look around and see smog
I can hardly breathe
Fresh air! But where?
What have we done?
I loved and lost
Better to have lost than not, as they say
And now I wander
Choosing the path not many would take
But I take it as I go
And that is that
