You

 
Sometimes, you find yourself
Waiting for something to happen
Something that would transform
What you are into
What you want to be —
Something real but dream-like
But not a dream
Something that would
Make you stand on tiptoe
On the edge of time and stare
At something sharp and honest
Like death. But, alive, allows you
To start your life anew
And find the elusive, ever puzzling
You.
