I Wish I’d Been . . .

Dandelion Clock


I Wish I’d Been


I wish I’d been taller, thinner, stronger

Popular, athletic, younger


I wish I’d been blonde, blue-eyed, prettier

Amusing, charming, wittier


I wish I’d been able to breathe with ease

Able to run with the breeze


I wish I’d been able to see like the rest

Able to stand the test


I wish I’d been kinder, calmer, wiser

Had a patient adviser


I wish I’d fit in with the crowd

Not always felt bowed


I wish I’d been taught not to mind

The bully with back up behind


I wish I’d been told it’s all right you know

Able to let things go


I wish I’d beenΒ  .Β  .Β  .



Never mind.

In the immortal words of Popeye

“I yam what I yam!”

    Every one of us thinks this about ourselves. We never quite measure up to our own expectations. It seems Popeye was right, we are who
    we are. Sadly it seems to take us a long time to figure that out and come to terms with it.

    Getting to know you through your blog has been a fun experience. l have no doubt you’re everything you’re supposed to be, and more. I like you just the way you are! πŸ€—

      Thank you very much. I certainly enjoy your lovely comments. :D)
      It took me a long time to learn to be forgiving to myself, as I would be to others.
