I am what I wasn't before

I was "perfect"

I was cute

I was an A+ student

I was talkative

I was curious

I was a performer

I was a jiujitsu competition winner

I was obedient 

I was tired before, I am tired now

I am flawed

I am pretty with a little fat

I am struggling to keep the grades up

I am a listener 

I am a singer and dancer in the shower

I am a holder of dusty trophies from years ago

I am me for myself and people can't stand that

I don't live for others anymore
