What is it Like to Live as You?

What is it like to live as you?
Live as someone who has exceptional intelligence,
Someone who always knows where to place their commas,
Someone who wins the spelling bee every year,
Someone whose confidence never diminishes,
Someone who eats yogurt for lunch every day,
Someone who wears a neon green sweatshirt frequently,
Someone who meant everything to a girl
Who was just making it by?

 

What is it like to live as you?
Someone who knows a girl likes them
That she summoned the courage from deep within
To confess to you
For she did want to deal with
Regrets haunting her for the rest of eternity,
Someone who did not like this girl back
And rejected her,
Launching her into a state of solitude and depression,
Believing she wasn’t good enough?

 

What is it like to live as you?
Someone who decides to stare at this girl
During lunch,
Seeking for an answer
You can never obtain.
She has gotten over you,
It wasn’t easy,
But it did get easier.
So tell me,
Why can’t you unlock your eyes from hers?
Hasn’t she gone through enough?

 

What is it like to live as you?
Someone who is a heartbreaker,
And almost left an incredibly strong girl
Broken down,
Someone who responded with a “Hell, no”
When asked if she was pretty or smart,
And then went on to insist that he didn’t hate her
And that he was “tolerating her”?
What does that even mean?

 

What is it like to live as you?
Is it easy,
Or is it a true challenge?
Do you ride the bus home every day,
And come home to a Victorian house
Where you complete your homework,
Use your phone,
And dream in a comfortable bed?
What is your life like?

 

What is it like to live as you?
I know you have a sister in law school,
That you play tennis,
That you live in Brooklyn,
That it takes you an hour and a half to get home from school,
That you enjoy attending six year old children’s birthday parties,
And that your mom packs your lunch for you.
But really,
What is it like?

 

Daniel, please tell me,
What is it like to live as you?
