I wish I was the old me

The old me I used to be

I wish that I had stayed ten times and weird

and didn’t give into people’s sneers

I wish that I had kept my mind open

more open than it is now

because if you only knew

the things I used to be able to do

you’d just think ‘wow’

I wish I was the old me

The old me I used to be

I wish I was the same creative mind

I wish I hadn’t began stifling it with time.

I wish I hadn’t begun to mind

what people thought of me all the time

I wish I hadn’t ever given in

and started to lose the magic within.

But it’s not too late

It’s not all gone

I haven’t completely forgotten my song.

It’s here somewhere

Just have to let it out

Need to rebuild my confidence

and remove self doubt.

I miss the old me

The old me I used to be

But here I am rebuilding again

It’s time to say hello to my old friend

The me I used to be.
