I look up at my idols
wishing how I could be like them
how their words could raise an army
how their colors fit just right
how their songs can elevate me
I wish I could be like them
And so I tried to write stories
but my words had no path
And so I tried to draw
but my legs looked stiff
And so I tried to sing my own songs
but the notes would not harmonize
I don't know how to be as good as them
But how I wished to be like them!
Could I ever be as good as them?
An average girl with a misspelled name?
No, I could never stand up so tall
But one day, someone told me,
I wish I could be like you
Then I wished
that I could be like her
So that maybe,
I could like being me
