Why is it when people look To be someone else They see the admirable qualities, Nothing short of perfection. Spawning jealousy, Playing down the flaws Even when overcoming The beauty, They see themselves And look at how they Fall short of talents And character. Why is it that They can’t grasp The admirable qualities Of which they cast? And the cycle goes on Striving to be Something they’re not. How is it that In the end We find who we are But start out as Who we’re not?
