There are times

I’m not a female,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t male

I’m not a black,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a white

I’m not immortal,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t mortal

I’m not a doubter,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a believer

I’m not a conservative,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a liberal

I’m not a saint,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t sinful

I’m not ignorant,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t learned

I’m not implicit
But there are times
I wish I weren’t explicit

I’m not an Islamic,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a Christian

I’m not an animal,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a human

I’m not in
But there are times
I wish I weren’t out

I’m not lonely
But there are times
I wish I weren’t the opposite

I’m not you
But there are times
I wish I weren’t me

… Still, there are times
I am the opposite
Of the opposite of me

I’m not in
But there are times
I wish I wasn’t out

I’m not lonely
But there are times
I wish there was an opposite

I’m not you
But there are times
I wish I wasn’t me —

But there are times
You are the opposite
Of the opposite of you
