About the Poem

I wrote this poem about the feeling I get that I want to be anyone but myself sometimes and how I wonder how life would be different if I changed.

A Few Visitor Comments

This poem is exquisite and I would love to read it to my step-mother one day when she finally decides to understand me.
This poem really spelt out my thoughts. I often wonder if things would turn out differently(better) if I was someone else....Finally, naye.... I still wanna be myself. We'll never know the future but I'm sure we can make one. Just by being ourselves.

Someone Else

Have you ever wished you were someone else?
Someone other than yourself.
Have you ever wanted to get away?
To be someone else for a day.

Does it seem like your lane is always jammed?
and everything you do is always dammed?
Do you always seem to catch the red light?
and you never seem to do anything right.

Do you try to make everyone happy, not sad?
but someone always ends up mad.?
If I changed my name
Would you treat me the same?

If I changed my face
How would I see this place?
If I changed my beliefs
Would my mind be anymore deep?

If I was someone else
Would I wish I was myself?
