Someday I Want To Be

Someday I Want To Be... What I want to be someday I will keep secret. For if I tell you I'm afraid I will regret. Because to shine a light on future hopes. Opens the door wide for idiots and dopes. So someday I want to be what I want to be. It's really not for you, it's only for me. So if and when that day does come. I hope it all adds up to a tidy sum. Looking in the mirror of future reflections. Is a solemn journey meant for private inspections. I've spent my whole life waiting for that day. But as you well know, what comes, what may. Someday I want to be happy to be me. To know a little joy and to just be free. To just be comfortable in my own skin. And get out of the trouble that I've gotten in. Note: Day 4 of writing exercise.

I think in hindsight, I was secretly hinting to my being who I am, but at the time, kept it secret, except for any professionals in my life.
