What I Want to Be

Nightmares plague me while
I fall through
Light air plagues me, can I
find someone new?

Togethor, we’ll parade to the grade,
As I scream to myself,
“You fool, look in front of you, see what you must do.”
Walking the streets at night,
the city lights block out the pretty sights

Everything is wrong-
I don’t know who I am
when you’re here/ when you’re gone

Can’t you see
what I’m not,
You’re blind to what
I want to be
