- What Matters
I want to fly and laugh till it hurts
I want to write until I've run out of words.
I want to run and have nobody catch me
So far, far away, where no one will find me
I want to sleep away mornings curled up in bed
I want to play songs over and over again
I want to lie and bask in the sun,
Dreaming and thinking until the day is done
I want somebody to hold me so tight
And wrap their arms around me all through the night
I want to climb mountains and look to the sky
If life were this perfect, we'd never die.
I want to have sand in my hair and my toes
The smell of the ocean twirling in my nose
I want to read until my eyes fall out
About far away countries I've heard so much about
I want to wear mismatching songs
Walking through creeks only on rocks
I don't want to be judged every single day
I want to be free from the things people say
I want to sing songs so loud and nobody will tell me I'm bad
I want to be able to cry, just because I'm sad
I want to get rid of any pain that I feel
The wounds and the scars that never seem to heal
I want to explore both far and near
And I want to listen to everything that I hear.
I want to swim and know I wont sink
And be so smart that I don't have to think.
I want to learn and have it be fun
I want to succeed, to feel like I've won.
I want to not feel the pressure to do drugs and drink
And do stuff with boys that's gross to even think
I want to look in the mirror and like what I see
And I want my friends boyfriend to stop talking to me
I want my skin to be porcelain clear
And I want the summer to finally get here.
I want to play the piano until my fingers are numb
I want to show my feelings without sounding dumb.
I wish my parents knew I had passions and dreams
But they don't understand no matter how hard I scream.
I don't really know where to go from here
As I'm holding this pen, I'm trembling in fear.
I have desires and wants, and all the rest
But nothing I do am I the best.
Maybe my mom was right the whole time
And everything I'm writing here, is just a silly rhyme
But I will keep hoping that these wants come true
And maybe one day, I will know what to do.
