You Were Born an Original, Don't Die a Copy♥

Who I am not
Who I want to be
I want to be the hero
Instead I am the sidekick
I want to be known
Instead I am just another face
I want to be the performer
Instead I am in the audience
I want to be heard
Instead I go unnoticed
I want to be brave
Instead I am a coward
I want to be found
Instead I am lost
I want to brighten
Instead I fade
I want to be metal
Instead I am glass
I want to be bright
Instead I am dull
I want to be graceful
Instead I am clumsy
I want my thoughts to be actions
Instead they are simply dreams
I want finish
Instead I am at the beginning
I want to float
Instead I sink
I want to be the hill
Instead I am the valley
I want to be built
Instead I am destroyed
I want to be the answer
Instead I am the question
I want to be the ally
Instead I am the enemy
I want to be rare
Instead I am common
I want peace
Instead there in war
