I want.

I want to be popular.
I don’t have an annoying voice.
I don’t wear what is hip.
I don’t have anyone that hates me.
I want to be popular, but I can’t.

I want to be a jock.
I don’t play sports,
I don’t have a team,
I don’t have a sweatshirt with my name on it.
I want to be a jock, but I can’t.

I want to be cool.
I don’t have many close friends.
I don’t go to the movies on Saturday night.
I don’t have the latest things.
I want to be cool, but I can’t.

I want to be smart.
I don’t have a 4.0.
I don’t try my best.
I am too afraid to ask the teacher.
I want to be smart, but I’m not.

I want to be a geek.
I don’t have many games.
I don’t have big glasses.
I don’t have a nasal voice.
I want to be a geek, but I can’t.

I want to be weird.
I don’t have my name known everywhere.
I don’t have unique characteristics.
I don’t like being noticed.
I want to be weird, but I can’t

I want to be normal.
I do what I want.
I have my own thoughts.
I am my own self.
I want to be normal and I am.
