Who I Am And Who I Used To BeWhere did she go?Who I Am And Who I Used To Be2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
The girl who used to smile so carefree.
Who could light up with a room with a mere laugh.
She wasn’t hindered by the
Scars of her past
and her present.
She baked cakes
And sang songs
And danced in the moonlight.
She would scream till her voice was raw
She was sad
But because she was so happy that she could barely handle it.
But then she was crushed
Erased from the present
And now stuck in the past.
In her place, is a girl who
Is afraid of the dark.
And no longer dances for fear of falling.
She has yelled at her parents.
And scream because she feels
Like it is the only way anyone will notice her.
This girl is not strong.
She is human.
Even though I have come to terms with her
When I lie in bed at night
Questions dance around my membrane.
Why can’t I find the old girl?
Where has she gone?
And why can’t I be her anymore?
