I wish

I wish I was fearless.

I wish I was eastern-bound and weighed down by nothing but minimal baggage and expectation.

I wish I could summon up courage in a heartbeat and spread it ahead of me to cushion any fall.

I wish I was brick-built and indestructible.

I wish I was solid and honourable and impervious to charm.

I wish I was complicated as slate and simple as rain.

I wish I was smooth and ruffle-free.

I wish I was sturdy and unable to sway.


I wish I was rock.

And mahogany.

And knowing.

I wish I was you.
