Everyone thinks my hopes for my future are weird,
But it is normal and average that I fear.
Growing up and living exactly like everyone else is not my desire,
There is a different type of life that I acquire.
I don’t mind working a nine to five,
I just need to have other activities that help me feel alive.
While my neighbors are driving their kids to summer school,
I want to be across the country lounging in a rooftop pool.
When my sister asks me to watch her kids so she can have one night to relax,
I want to be on a first class flight to Paris eating airplane snacks.
I believe there is a lifestyle for everyone and I’m not judging I swear,
I just would rather live differently, freely, with a little less care.
