Let go and live.

I'm standing in the place
Of a girl who has been replaced.
We are both the same
She and i.
But the person who I used to be...
Well iv changed drastically.
I stand in the place of who I was,
Changed in more ways than one.
I try to remember the other me
Always happy...giggling...
Then life stepped in
And ruined it all.
It broke the happy me,
Into the girl you all see.
Now I’m distant.
Locked inside
Most of the time I’m even afraid
To cry!
Yea I’m happy sometimes,
There’s the good and the bad.
But sometimes I wish I could just go back
Don’t we all?
Back before life broke me.
But now I’m slightly distant
Not always happy,
Not always sad,
Just me and who I am today.
I embrace who I am
Even if iv changed.
Because who I am is me
Not quite normal,
A bit from crazy.
Just somewhere in between
So yea this is me the impostor.

I agree with Amai-kun. Great work! You are very talented but it could also use some work. I like the middle and ending the best, the beginning could use some work though:) -Honest Advice

I think your poetry in general could benefit from a more formal choice of words and some editing. The ideas are nice, but you need to work more on going over them to fine-tune them.
