I Long - Poem by Courtney Beaudry

I long to be like the bird
Who can fly very far away
Who can fly away from this horrid day

I long to be like the butterfly
Who can shine for everyone to see
Who is actually pretty and graceful unlike me

I long to be like you
Who is perfect in everyway
Who always knows exactly what to say

I long to be something
I'd rather be anything
Than be this stupid nothing
