I want to be like you.
I want to smile at a girl and see her blush.
Drink with the boys all weekend long and keep my wife at bay.
Be muscular so I can hide my cowardice.
Kill spiders without a lending hand, no screams
Wake up no make-up, no weave.
Take Physics and Chemistry.
Watch horror movies all alone.
And talk little.
I want to take my rightful posture, pee while standing.
Be a man in grief and cry deep in the night if need be.
Be an heir too, father!
No heels no more.
Fight to prove a point.
Have a deep voice and shift place in the choir.
For once not to care how I look, to just be.
So look me in the eye and say yes!
Because I want to be like you.
