Someone Else - Poem by christine mcCherry

Who would I really like to be
If I was someone else but me
Well that's a question, theres no doubt
Thats very hard to figure out.
Perhaps a younger, fitter me
with ears that hear and eyes that see
without an aid to help me so
And a boost to help me go
An artist then of great renown
A queen perhaps with golden crown
An author now, would be my choice
A writer with a powerful voice
Who'd tell of horrors caused by men
And put them right with ink and pen.

But still, if all of this were true
What would all my loved ones do?
If I was someone else, you see,
Those I love may not love me!


Poet's Notes about The Poem

This question was asked of me at a recent writers group. This was my answer. If we change who we are we also change everything else.
