A poem I wrote about a different version of myself I wish to be.

Why am I so unhappy when life is giving me all I need?

Why is it always misery that I choose to feed?

Why do I choose to disguise my emotions with a painted on smile?

Why does it feel like when I’m taking a step I’m crawling a mile?

Well now the time has come to start a fresh as the days go on,

To face the world, smile and stay strong,

Remember and revert back to the person I used to be,

The more positive, bubbly, party girl hidden inside of me.

 

I don’t understand how I lost the person I once felt,

Before I used to write, sing and dance and inside I would melt,

It helped forget, delay and hide any problems in life I used to get,

Partying and enjoying the night with the friends that I met,

I used to be known for my slim figure, my confidence but mostly my wiggle,

Shaking my bottom uncontrollably to the music, the one stood in the middle.

 

I shook dancing to the music, to the rhythm and to the beat,

I laughed and smiled with my friends the night was always my treat,

Sadly I know now could never be then, life changes and going back wouldnt feel the same,

Life soon took full control, reality now denies me of that once youthful partying game,

 

I keep the life I once lived a happy distant thought,

I will collect all them moments until I have them all caught,

Stored safely in my mind of the time I lived my gothic phase,

Memories that make me smile, oh those were the happy days,

I try not to focus on what is lost in me, my hardest to refrain,

Instead I try to look towards the positive, hope that may still remain.

 

It’s time to bring back the strength in me, to dance and to sing,

To live life to the fullest, to see what time might bring,

I’m releasing the one that hides within, trapped but now set free,

A chance that I feel is worth taking, to change the life I see,

Life might have taken all that from me before but now I am back,

I haven't lostmyself completely, more prepared ready to attack.

 

The person that I have became I aim to lose,

A distant memory of a life I didn't choose,

I’m focusing on my future, it's time to forget the past,

To let myself be happier, enjoy a future I know can last.
