I Could'Ve Been You

Poem By Faith Elizabeth Brigham

i could've been you
if i were your age
in the current day
yes, you with the hair
in purposeful disarry
ring in one nostril
and ever so cautious
look in your eyes

i feel your pain
not in precisely
the same way you do
but i've been on
the edge of terror before
and when all is said and done
the fact remains i could've
been you (believe me, baby)
i know because i've been
where you have be

I think this myself a lot. Sometimes I'm grateful, sometimes not. Nice flowing language (except for the typo on line 14) .
