I wish...

I wish people could live through my day See the things I see, hear the things I say If only people could see me inside The emotions I feel, the troubles I hide.

I wish people could see how I feel All of the thoughts that are too strong toreveal.

If only people could read my mind Not just the image I hide behind I wish people knew the things I know The places I've been, the places I'll go.

If only people could do the things I can See more of the person I know I am.

I wish people would look further and see The person I call the real me.
