Role Model

i am and always was…You.
i was formed… from You.

i rose up high
to meet your expectations,
and left what was me

now i am all that You are.
but still i can never reach
You, who stand up on that pedestal
that i put You on.

You, who are too friendly,
too kind, too generous, too funny,
too… perfect.

i resent You, for being so far
and i admire You, for being so close
and i love You.

when i see You
i see perfection,
i do not see myself.

and yet i am You
in essence.
i am You.

what You say, i learn
where You go, i go
who You love… i am jealous

but i love them too,

because i am You.
