~Someone Else~

By Frosty   

~Someone Else~
Someone else,
I used to want to be.
Small and weak,
Is how I described me.
But something inside,
I feel a switch has been flipped.
20 long years,
Of self-doubt which gripped,
A heavy heart,
And a heavy soul.
I thought I could never escape,
This inevitable black hole.
And yet here I am,
With this sudden change of thought.
I see another,
But want to be them I did not.

I’ve had very low self esteem my whole life. Up until recently every time I looked in the mirror and I would pick apart what I saw. Anyone I saw I would hate that I was me and wished I could be a different person. But randomly looked at a teammate of mine and it wasn’t the case. I actually was glad that I was me. I loved my life and didn’t want to live another life without my girlfriend Sydney.
