Losing Myself

Standard

I was happy

& carefree

I was doing just fine

Along came

Education

And ruined my life

 

I wasn’t worried about

The perils

Tomorrow might bring

They taught me to

Anticipate the future

& I lost my will to sing

 

I loved not knowing

Where my path

Would lead today

They taught me to

Plan ahead

& I felt my excitement ebb away

 

My life was a kaleidoscope

Of colors

In every shade

They taught me to

Walk the line

& my colors faded into grey

 

The little things in life

Used to please me

The most

They taught me

To focus on the bigger picture

& my pleasures became lifeless ghosts

 

So profound

Was the effect

Education had on me

I went from being

A vibrant soul

To a sophisticated wannabe

I still search for

My former self

In the depths of my heart

Who knows, maybe one day

I’ll find her

& we’ll make a fresh start
