Somebody Else

Every so often I wish
I was someone happy
At times I dream of another time
another place, another body

Whether it be a man or woman
it seems not to matter
Only that I was young again
with the vigor to face the day...and night

There are moments of clarity
when it all comes together
But it is only for a fleeting moment
an impulse from a damaged mind

If only today, yes today
I could go through a metamorphous
An inner change that could solve the dilemma
in answer to my demons

Yes, I wish I were somebody else
somebody like you
Somebody happy
somebody not like me
