    she gets tired of being
    herself
    sometimes
    thinks it would be cool to be
    somebody else
    for a while
    to
    look through different lens
    tread in other shoes
    wear another skin
    think down different paths
    to
    forget about the brand of
    restlessness and struggle
    dissatisfaction and dispassion
    rules and patterns
    isolating and giving
    that is uniquely hers
    trade them in for
    new issues
    guest star in a
    different drama
    or maybe just
    see it for the first time
    she thinks,
    can I borrow your life
    because sometimes
    I'm a little bit more
    than I
    can stand
    but girl
    there is no
    coffee break
    from self
    no way to be
    someone else
    if you're
    tired of it
    you're stuck
    if you don't
    wanna do it
    you're out of luck
    fortunately
    though
    you've got
    self love
