I wish I could be like you

I wish I could wear skinny jeans with size 13 feet and feel comfortable
Wear these big ass scarfs and tell people Im fashionable
Or wear a poncho over a jacket and not care about the looks I get
Or wear a charli chaplin style hat and feel like Im the sh…
Or maybe I should become a rapper, and delete all the poetry stuff I have done
Cause Im going in a new direction and I cant have people looking at the old one
I wish I could be like the rest of my creative family
But it seems Im not creative enough
I wish I could get on stage, with a poem Im so comfortable with
That even if you heard it for the 20th time you would still love it
Or write a poem so creative that the only thing I play with is my pronunciation
But wait, maybe Im now able to give that kind of demonstration
We dream to dream, but never have we seen a scene
Where the moon cries teaeeers of joy, joy, joy
I wish I could be like the rest of my creative family
But it seems Im not creative enough
Want to look at the world, and see my work as the only thing that has relevancy
I want to be an unknown broke writer who will only work for money
I want chasing dreams as a hobby while I do the day job
I want to sit there stinking and be pride of the fact that I’m a slob
I want to reject work because its not creative enough
And when no one likes my work I want the confidence to say “they are just not smart enough”
I want the level of creativity where I wont compromise even if its necessary
Perform in front of a 100 people, and then just do a piece I wrote for me
Not to perform with … no no no, for me
I wish I could be like the rest of my creative family
But it seems Im not creative enough
I want to go that extra mile, and find music no one listens to so I can feel special
Not that the music is good, its just that no one listen to it, so I feel special
I want to call myself a musician and say that I am a mixture of all these different genres in one
I want to call myself a photographer and let selfies be the only thing Im good at taking
I want sit in the audience and applaud even though I didn’t get a word you were saying
But Im sitting there just to say I support the arts
I wanna create sentences that make no sense, and get away with it cause I call it poetry
I want to be a jerk, and blame it on my creativity
I want to go to a dubstep concert and perform spoken word, and tell people its all about energy
Im telling you, I wish I could be like the rest of my creative family
But it seems Im not creative enough

So from time to time, I like  being honest, and how much more honest can I be when I say “I wish I could be like you”. To feel so comfortable in your skin that you can do whatever you want, is just pretty darn awesome. So that is why I can sit here and say “I wish I could be like you”, just so I can feel so darn comfortable in my own skin that I just dont care anymore. Or maybe I would be like “I wish I could be like you”, just so I can sit there and try to find something unique to claim to be my own. Its still pretty coo to see that I can still write a piece about my feelings, and be all honest about it. So no matter how you feel, or think about it “I wish I could be like you” is something that just sticks around. Yeah, I did this one on the radio, and I felt like I should put it on the site as well, JUST to make sure you guys can read what I said in case you missed it. And I did make a few people smile, with this one, and that makes it all worth it … doesnt it? So yeah, “I wish I could be like you” is the extra piece of the week. And it was written after I met some of the most intriguing people at some of the most creative and fun events, so thank all the creative people for the birth of “I wish I could be like you”

Now if you like “I wish I could be like you” I am sure you will like some of the other pieces of mine.
