I just want to be happy.

-

just once
I want to be
the one
everyone else
wants to be.

just once
I want to be
the one
everyone else
is so jealous of.

just once
I want to see
my name
graffitied on the bathroom wall.

just once
I want to be
everyone's favorite
person.

just once
I want to be
able to stop
pretending
and be happy

if only just once.
