i might be a cliche in twenty years

it’s a classic story, forever retold
live life like a song on the radio
dance in the rain with a man
wear your heart on your sleeve
love and your heart will grow
it’s a life lived through clichés

is it so much to ask that i want more
i will live a life of freedom,
new experiences will be all mine
the world will look back on my life
and see only my story

i connect with the earth, the sun
i am myself, an original creation
they all say i’m a young copy of her
but i’m just a young version of myself

i am no one’s mini me
writers don’t just put words on paper
they write their lives to unique perfections

teach me to avoid clichés
but eventually someone copies it

and before you know it everything is a cliché
