I Am The Best Me


I wish that I had a magic wand
I wish I could stop all strain

I wish that I could get things right
Never be a problem to anything

I wish what being human
Was what I try to be

Then maybe I could be the best
A super hero that could fly

I would save everything
Even me

I would be so free
I would be an amazing me

But I am not
I am sorry
I am only me

But I am the best me
And I need to except that
