At first...but now

At first... I was i big fish in a small pond.
but now... I'm drowining in Poseidon's sea.
At first... I was clumsy, creative,and careless.
but now... Its steal a curse.
At first... the worso big.
but now... It seems so small.
At first... I only saw with my eyes.
but now... I see my mind.
At first... I thought I was whole.
but now... I see i have many pieces.
At first... I couldn't see.
but now... I soar with wax wings.
At first... I slept.
but now... I dream.
At first... I cryed for lost words.
but now... I speek my mind.
At first... I was lost in the endless Labyrinth.
but now... I see the way.
At first... I followed a set path.
but now... I makw my own.
At first... I felt pain.
but now... I am numb.
At first... I was ignorant.
but now... Knowledge has set me free.
At first... I could only see the darkness at night.
but now... I see the stars.
At first... I was someone else.
but now... I am me.
