Story of My Life

I'm tired of coming in second at everything in life;
I want to be someone's first choice.
I want you to talk about me,
Like I'm the most amazing person you've ever met-
Because I can be, if you give me a chance.
My dreams may be a little farfetched,
But that is why we dream:
To want the unimaginable and to reach for the stars.
I like to believe that I'm one of the most amazing people
That you'll ever meet,
And that you won't realize it until it's too late.
But, believing one thing doesn't necessarily mean it's true.
I'm not perfect-
I make mistakes, and my hair doesn't always stay neatly in place.
I deserve to be respected for who I am and who I can be.
I am perfectly imperfect at being me.
