I wish I weren't me
I wish I weren't me!
I sometimes wish that I weren't me!
I were who I've always wanted to be!
A loving angel of the seventh heaven!
Chosen from seraphs of all the seven!
For my devotion to all the living souls!
In their suffering, who softly consoles!
Reaches instantly to whoever is in pain!
To give tender loving care most humane!
To look after dotingly for an ailing child!
To treat gently even the ones gone wild!
Even if I didn't have the powers to cure!
I could make sickness easier to endure!
Wherever I went, I took moments of joy!
With a soothing caress, or a magical toy!
My aura made grieving souls get a smile!
To keep it forever, not just to last a while!
I could enable infirm to independently live!
Instead of taking help, become able to give!
Not just I could heal bodies, also the minds!
Turn the impaired into a genius of a rare find!
In that quest I've worn a healer's white coat!
To do my little part though it's nothing of note!
I know I can never be who I've wanted to be!
But I can keep trying to become a better me!
