Look at me, I’ve changed

From the girl who used to laugh at her own lame joke,
To the girl who now gives only a vacant smile when told one,
I’ve changed.

From the girl whose presence seemed to light up the mood,
To the girl who now wants to hide to avoid being ignored,
I’ve changed.

From the girl who was sure nothing mattered more than her family,
To the girl whose reckless words now cause them pain every day,
I’ve changed.

From the girl who couldn’t understand how somebody could be “depressed”,
To the girl who now feels like she’s engulfed in a bubble of darkness,
I’ve changed.

From the girl who couldn’t ever hide her worries from her mother,
To the girl who has now learnt to cry herself to sleep,
I’ve changed.

Oh, how I’ve changed.

  1. This poem was really good. I’ll say the same thing I did last time, just because it’s still so odd to me: your writing style reminds me of my own.

    Also, I know you said this is fiction, but just in case it’s not or there’s some truth behind it, I hope everything is okay. You seem like an amazing person, and you’re a wonderful writer. Don’t ever let anyone get you down, and do ever be ashamed to be yourself. It took me too long to realize that. I hope you have an amazing rest of your week and that you are and continue to be happy. 💙

    Each day if we look at ourselves, there are no major changes. But looking back a decade or a year, the changes are vast. It’s fabulous and fascinating how time works in all aspects.
