When I Was Me

When i was me,
I used to b so free!
But here i am,
Like a shell lost in the sea!


When i was me,
I was so joyful!
But here i am,
Being so remorseful!


When i was me,
I loved thyself!
But here i am,
Even hating myself!


When i was me,
I used to go singing!
But here i am,
Loneliness is all that is ringing!


When i was me,
I didnt even wish for a thing!
But here i am,
Left without everything!


When i was me,
My friends used to be my soul!
But here i am,
Nursing my shattered life on the whole!


When i was me,
Life was so beautiful!
But here i am,
Being so tearful!


When i was me,
I used to smile!
But here i am,
My life in such a turmoil!


When i was me,
I used to b on the cloud!
But here i am,
Lost even in the crowd!


When i was me,
I used to be me!
But here i am,
Wishing to b me!
