i wish i wanted to be normal.

I wish I was normal. I wish I was just like you.

Well, maybe not “JUST” like you, but close enough.

Close enough to fit in like you.

Close enough to blend in with the crowd

and fit into the rest of the puzzle like you.

I wish I knew the meaning of life like you.

Or maybe didn’t care about it as much like you.

I NEED A PURPOSE.

I NEED TO FIT IN.

I wish I was normal like any other kid.

I wish I was going to prom.

I laughed at the kids dressed up for prom from the diner booth while listening to Chuck Berry and wearing Chucks dirtier than the 18+ section in Evangeline’s feeling so cool,

And it hit me.

I wish I was going too.

I wish I wanted to go.

I wish I was normal.

I wish I was just like you.
