Treasure Island

Who I wish I was, And Who I am


Who I wish I was,
Is someone who will stand and fight,
Someone who will not run,
Someone who wont be scared,
Someone with many friends,
Someone who is a hero,
Someone who will tackle the bully,
Someone who charges at danger,

Who I am,
Who I am is someone who will not stand to fight,
Someone who runs,
Someone who is to afraid,
Someone with little friends,
Someone who is a loner,
Someone who wont face a bully,
Someone who always looks back,

Can I ever be who I want to be,
Can I ever face someone and fight,
Can I be a hero,
