Trying to find something that I long for, yet falling down the crack in my mind~

Fragments of people I wish I could be.
They gather behind my eyes and try to see my world.
Always pushing and shoving like children,
Confusing and changing me as they go.
I try to be myself but they keep turning me away.
Pulling me this way and that, ‘Why not be me today~?’
Always always I watch those with perfect demeanor.
Why are they so confident in who they are?
Am I the only one who has to fight with myself?
Through trial and error, the answer I’ve come to is ‘No.’
Just like me, they have to constantly battle and strive.
Always clinging to what they want to be.
After a while, I noticed that they watch me too.
But what they see is someone who always embraces change,
Walks her own path, and does it all with the confidence of experience.
They too fight their 100 fragments, searching for the perfect combination.
And the only difference between me and them is that I’m still looking~

Ease swiftly through complex movements.
Never a beat off, always twirling and shifting.
As I watch, I begin to wonder about the other.
‘How did you come to know your gift?
Was it a fluke? Perhaps someone pushed you?’
As my thoughts wandered, my eyes glided back to your form.
Exquisite motion greet my eyes as you seemingly
Float across the room, every limb swaying to the beat.
You smile as you go along, unaware of my gaze.
Not a care in the world; just you and the small universe you create.
I find myself drawn into that smile, bewitched even.
How can such a simple expression change you so much?
It’s as if every sound you hear is music and you can’t help yourself.
The music stops and your friends come to congratulate you.
Small tears trickle from the corners of your eyes.
Chuckling, I stand up from my perch.
Perhaps I’ll come watch you again sometime~
