now, i am...

it seems yesterday
i was shy,
then i was 'bold',
now at times i dont care a damn.

it seems yesterday
i couldn't take a joke,
then i could laugh at myself,
now i can bite with my vinegar wit.

it seems yesterday
i dreamed up sweet stories of love,
then i got to writing about death,
now i dont dream of love nor wonder about death.

it seems yesterday
i didnt think of life as a goal to score, 
then life was full of possibilities,
now i realise i still havent scored any.

well...
here i am,
an adult i would never wish upon my child.
