The person I want to be

Behind myself is a person,

Not just any person,

But a person who isn’t afraid to get on a table and scream,

A person who isn’t afraid to make a smile that beams,

A person who isn’t afraid to let the world see,

A person I want to be.

But who is blocking that person to be?

I guess the world itself that shames your glory.

They laugh at you for being yourself,

You get considered a joke,

A false reputation,

False accusations.

Nothing is real,

But you get blamed anyway,

Want to hide every day.

You want to talk but you can’t even say.

A person I want to be,

One that isn’t afraid to make friends,

A person you can always depend,

A person,

That can make a stand.

Why is the world so cruel to the shy and weak?

No one would be afraid to be themselves.

Sometimes,

I really wish everything were easier,

And it never is for me.

Because I guess I’ll never get to be

The person I want to be.
