The Me You Wish I Was
I am From...
I am from Disney & sparkles.
From dreaming for my own fairytale with a handsome Prince Charming.
I am from fingers sticky with s'mores & warm sunshine.
From the insignificant things that still light up my face with a smile.
I am from bestfriends & teammates.
From two worlds. Pulling me in two different directions.
I am from messy mascara & too much hairspray.
From wanting to fit in but still be me.
I am from “always try harder” & “always be the best.”
From parents that push for the top, but forget about the girl that they're pushing.
I am from undirected anger & self-disappointment.
From “work harder and push yourself.” Never enough.NEver being what they want.
I am From trying to make them proud & trying to be their favorite.
From trying not disappoint. Anyone. Ever
I am from trying so hard & wanting so much.
From never reaching the unattainable paradise of perfection.
I am from yesterday & today.
