Not Like You

Ever since I remember I never wanted to be like you

You, with your all-day away from home job

You, with your negligence disguised as a bread-winning trophy

You, with your unstable relationships that never lasted long enough for me to get used to

I’m sure there was a time I esteemed you, but it didn’t last long

For my English class about someone I admired, I didn’t choose you

You crossed my mind for a brief moment before I realized there wasn’t anything to praise you about

Instead, I wrote about a musician that I felt I knew better

A musician whose songs would pick me up when I felt down

Sometimes you have mentioned how you would like me to be just like you

And that has made me feel terrible because I’m not you when you were my age, no

I’m something else entirely yet you can't fully accept me the way I am

You want someone just like you, constantly mistreated while paying for everyone’s bills

I’m not and I’ll never be you

I want to be me and me alone

I want to know what’s like to create with no time in mind

I want to be a nurturing force

I want my other half to be stability itself

So, no, I’m not like you

Not today

Not ever

I’m me

I’m me alone

And that should be more than enough.
