Gone

Do you ever feel like you have lost yourself?

Where did you go?

Did you even know who you were in the first place?

Your outside appearance has changed.

Your slim figure has transformed to slightly overweight.

Your hair is longer and back to it’s natural color.

Did the hair dye box hide you away?

Are you gone forever?

Where did the fun in you go?

You used to light up a room.

Now you enter and it’s as if you aren’t even there.

Where have your friends and family gone?

You stand alone (abandoned).

But who abandoned who?

Where did you go? Why?
