The Woman I Wished To Be

I become more like the woman I wished to be everyday 

 

I wear golden rings 

And keep mints in my bag 

Car keys in my pocket 

And wear a signature perfume 

 

I try to make my bed everyday 

And do my hair nicely 

Wash my clothes on Friday 

And wear a new lip color 

 

I buy myself coffees 

And read books for pleasure 

Take the long way home to hear my one song

And wear mom jeans 

 

I buy big earrings 

And hang posters on my walls

Listen to oldies radio 

And cut my own hair 

 

I become more like the woman I wished to be everyday 

This poem is about: 
Me
