Just Like Me

If he’s a boy,
he’ll be shy
He’ll have trouble talking to girls
He’ll have hand tremors
And heart palpitations
Two might be a crowd
He’ll value his privacy
He’ll be a nice guy till it wears him out
He’ll keep being nice because he can’t say ‘no’
He’ll cry if he has to
He’ll say he’s fine when he’s not
He’ll tell all his secrets to a blank sheet
And hide his weaknesses in poems and stories
His insecurities would haunt him
He’ll embrace them
He’ll have a love/hate relationship with science
He’ll be a cool dude, girls might like him
He’ll be untidy, he’ll grow a beard
He won’t cut it for a while
He’ll laugh a lot, he’ll say ‘please’
He’ll say ‘thank you’ and ‘excuse me’
He’ll be a gentleman
He’ll be weird
He’ll be a loner, a friendly one
He’ll sink in his thoughts
He’ll battle depression
He’ll love, take too much sugar,
Watch lots of TV, he’ll crave knowledge,
He’ll loathe school
He won’t be able to dance
He’ll love a good perfume
We will have our work cut out if we have a son
But he’ll be just fine
Because he’ll be just like me.

    Those lines hit me, i don’t know if it’s because i was like that in the past.
    Maybe I’m still like that.
    This is a good one πŸ™‚
