Just Once

Sometimes I think...

Just once,
I'd like to be
a part of things.

You don't
mean to hurt me
when I'm not...

You're just
talking about
normal stuff

Getting used
to married life,
its ups and downs

Setting up
an apartment, if
it's furnished or not

Your wigs
hair up or down
itchy, comfy, or off.

Dating, marriage
child rearing and
other things

That for
me, are far
off dreams...

Then I remember....

To you,
I'm normal,
just like you.

I'm not
a pathetic, depressed
abused, confused

person. I'm
your cousin,
your friend, sister

aunt, niece,
classmate and

I'm me.
And that's just
the way I want it.

(thanks to all the people who keep reminding me how normal and regular I am, without even knowing what you're doing!)
