To Be You

I need to live your life

For just one day

Or an hour

Or a second


I need to see through you

For just one moment

Through your eyes

Your ears

Your mouth


I need to walk in your shoes

For a second or two

To the club

To your apartment

To the store

To the meaningful places


I need to feel your feelings

For just a short time

Your sadness

Your joy

Your anger

Your questioning

Your madness


But mostly

More than anything

I need to be you

Not me

So I can see me

As I truly am

And see the world

As it never was
