I wish I were cool

I wish I were normal

I wish I were more fun to be around

I wish I could be just one of the guys

Or else be free to be me


I wish I had friends

(My close ones are gone)

I wish I had more interaction

As much as I love them,

I wish that my books

Were not my sole companions


I wish that my life were already set

I wish for a new career

I wish that I had a person to love

And someone to love me in return


‘Cause you don’t understand

The struggle is real

Every day is an uphill battle

With no end in sight

I wish for sleep

Instead of this crying all through the night


(This came to me earlier today at work, of all places.  It’s a work in progress, but what do you think?)
