I Wish I Could Be More Like Them


Twenty20 / @kenziebarden

I wish I could be more like them.
Like the ones from middle school
who never really had to try.

Or like the ones
who wear sunglasses indoors
and never apologize for it.

I wish I could be
the kind of girl that doesn’t trip
over her own two feet.

Or like the ones
who take leaps
just to feel alive.

I wish I could be more like
the people who kiss other
lips without hesitation.

Or like the ones
that
love without thought.

I wish I could be
more glossy
more shiny
more cookie cutter.

More like someone
who doesn’t feel the need
to care so much.

More like someone
who doesn’t feel the need
to think so much.

I wish I could be
the kind of girl
that screams cool.

The kind of girl
that eyes swim to
when she enters a room.

I wish I could be just like them.
Caring less.
And feeling more. TC mark
