A different me

When I grow up I want to be a carpet 
so she doesn’t have to walk on bare boards. 

I want to turn the other cheek and wear matching bruises. 

I want to learn to stay quiet not to make her fight. 

I want her to see me not around me 
to love me not be angry

When I grow up I want to be 
a different me.
