"I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly and then all at once." -John Green

What am I?
A nothing.
What will I be?
Maybe something.

What are you?
A something.
What will you be?
Something better.

There’s not much hope.
Not for me.
You, however, have the world
at your mercy.

You’re lucky.
Do you even realize?
People love you.
They hate me.

You will go places.
I’ll forever be in your shadow.
You have a plan.
I just have a dream.

Guess that’s the difference.
The difference between you and me.
