What I wish


I wish when I smiled, I meant it,

I want my laugh to sound carefree like it did before,

I need to be the center of the picture;

so that I know I wont be the one on the outside.

I miss the way I used to be, 

But I'm trying

I miss feeling healthy, so I've started working out,

I need to feel wanted, so I only talk to people who bring out my best.

I want to go to college, so I set out time to apply for scholarships to make it.

And lastly I wish to be a better influence in the world;

so that when I smile, I mean it.
