Who I Knew

I am no longer the same

but I am still me,

no longer scared 

but able to see.

The confidence that was


deep inside of me.


The people I had,

and the people I have

helped me learn,

helped me grow, 

helped me lose my overbearing feeling of



From being on stage

to speaking in front of the student body,

I grew

and was no longer the

person I once knew.


I fell in love

only to fall out

a simple experience

that went south

from that I grew more

and found out...


I am no longer the same.
