This is a failed attempt to get out of it.
I wish I were taller,
so I don’t have to tiptoe when I want to whisper in your ears.
I wish I were sarcastic,
so I know what to say when you mock me about it.
I wish I were less proud,
so I can reply when you tell me those three words.
I wish I were a risk-taker,
so I don’t have to think twice when you asked that question.
I wish I were there with you,
just so we can have those all over again.
