Life

A Thousand Faces and more…

March 18, 2008

everyday its the same old story
a single face
a single identity
life is a boring chore
life is a daily routine
life goes on rudderless
life goes on emotionless
Oh, how i wish
i had a face for each person
i had an emotion for each occasion
how i wish
i could change my self
yet remain the same inside
how i wish
i was loved by some
i was hated by one
how i wish
i was the object of attraction
i was the object of abuse
how i wish
i could wear a brand new dress
each time i grow up
yet be the same
how i wish
i had the power to quell anger
yet create a storm when needed
how i wish
i could make rules
yet break them the next moment
how i wish
i was the most important person
in the whole wide world
yet remain unknown to many
how i wish
i had the power to show what love is
yet remain clueless about all of it
how i wish
i get to be a leader
yet remain a follower at the same time
how i wish
i had the power to create
and have the power to destroy
how i wish
i had a thousand faces and more
how i wish
i was a woman
