I Am What I Want

Don't ask me if I want to be X.

I will be what I desire. 

If I wanted to be a boy,

Don't you think I would be?

If I wanted to be a musician,

Then that wouldn't be a mystery.

If I wanted to be skinny 

I would be, and I try.

If I wanted to disappear

Then I would die.

I will be what I want,

I will be what I wish,

So please don't ask me 

Do want to be this?
