Sometimes life takes a path that is hard to walk on, so all you have to do is put on your hiking boots.

Pop stars
Everyone loves them
Everyone “knows” them
Everyone wants to be them
See them
Meet them
Or be with them
“ I love him”
“ I want to marry him”
Mrs. Bieber Mrs. Payne Mrs. Styles
The list goes on
Every single one of us has the small feeling inside of them thinking
What if that were me
I wish that were me
Could that be me
With you
Dating you
What if that were me in that picture instead of her
Everyone has that feeling
Daydreaming in class about some completely fictional idea
Of running into Justin Bieber
Him falling in love with you
Every other girl on the planet
Jealous of you
You think to yourself
What if that were me
I wish that were me
Could that be me?
But think about
Do we really know these people?
On the TV
Our “crushes”
The hottest people we’ve seen
Dreaming about
Hoping we’ll see someone like them walk down our high school hallways
Do we really love the people we all read about?
Is that really love
Or is that a perception
An idea
And illusion of what they are
Who they are
They are what we want them to be
