Little Less Like Me

If only I were brave
I'd kiss you in the hall.
If only I had courage
I'd talk to you,
Alone on the bench.
If only I were stronger
And could laugh off
Rejection.
If only I were prettier
I wouldn't have to.
If only I were more brutal
I wouldn't be scared
Of hurting him.
If only I were just
A little less like me...
