I wish other people’s smiles,
Didn’t push me to force mine,
I wish I didn’t feel like breaking down,
Every time they asked if I was fine.
I wish other people’s bodies,
Didn’t make me want to change my own,
I wish I could look in the mirror,
And not see someone who felt so alone.
I wish the words that they said,
Didn’t feel like they were directed at me,
I wish I could say what I was actually thinking,
I just want to accept myself, and be carefree.
I wish the love they showed me,
Didn’t make me question if it was true,
I wish I could believe their compliments,
And not put myself down for all that I do.
I wish I could hold myself together,
And not hold myself back from moving ahead,
I wish I could stop being my worst enemy,
And be my biggest cheerleader instead.
