Wannabes

April 22, 2014

I can’t stand the wannabe,

hiding in the shadow of others

really they are  saying they cannot be

preferring a hollow security.

Nothing is achieved in imitation

you find yourself always one step behind,

this is its ultimate limitation

the moment you never can find

jealous of the living, who embrace it now

you cling to it belatedly, jaded

you never can quite see how,

but your soul grows more and more faded.

What once was wanted, you now idolise,

its the only way to distance it from yourself

so you need no longer despise

and envy them their wealth.
