Playing Pretend

I want to be someone

Worthwhile to follow

Who’s strong and un-scareable

But soft and not hollow.

I’ll rule how I want

With my people behind,

But keep ‘em all happy

By treating ‘em kind.

I’ll listen and fix ‘em

Whenever they’re broken

They won’t be alone

Cause I’ll be there to hold ‘em.

I’ll lead and they’ll follow

Like my favorite game;

They’ll clap and they’ll cheer

And scream my name.
